Still Waiting, Not Quite So Patiently
We are still waiting. Two weeks from when we first discovered the chrysalis passed on September 8th. The leaf it is attached to was drooping perilously, so Ed carefully tied it up. I'm still hoping that this butterfly will hatch. They call me Pollyanna! The time period for hatching given in "An Extraordinary Life,The Story of a Monarch Butterfly" is 5 to 15 days. We're a bit overdue. I will keep checking anyway,but at some point I will have to give up and harvest those beets!
