Look, what I have found in my vege patch!. This is one of the five caterpillars munching away greedily at the kaffir lime leaves. Of course, it is not an optional ingredient for the fish floss recipe. It is left in the garden to continue it's metamorphosis to become a butterfly.
Although we always have some herbs growing in the garden, they seem to run out of supply, killed by the occasional heatwave or they have died of hunger and thirst mainly due to our negligent to feed them.
I still have a lot to learn how to be self-sufficient. I think it's important to move to the next level of learning how to grow and garden sustainably. It's definitely cheaper as I don't have to rely and pay an exorbitant price at the supermarket for my herbs and vegetables.
