Robin from Various and Sunday and I made a little trip down to Imperial Beach to Pumpkin Palooza, held at the very cool Suzie's Farm. Suzie's Farm is an organic farm that supplies vegetables to many of the city's restaurants.
There was music, food (pumpkin chili from the God Save the Cuisine food truck, yum!), and fun: pumpkins and chickens enjoying pumpkins! Y'all know I loves me a chicken...
A good time was had by all--including the chickens.

The biggest one was hanging in a "J" shape, not moving, and I thought it was ill, so I tried to "help" it. Unbeknownst to me, it was getting ready to pupate and form a chrysalis...which we actually watched (one of the most amazing things to see, truly). That's it on the bottom.
One of my caterpillars died a rather gruesome death: it was parasitized by flies (ewwww....gross!).
The last one is busily eating and getting MUCH bigger, so fingers crossed it turns into a chrysalis too. I'm obsessed with them and check on them every half hour or so. I could sooo easily have become a lepidoperist. Second (or third or fourth, in my case) career?
