I honestly thought it would take a couple of years for the monarchs to find us.
Looks like they not only found you, but flocked to your house in throngs!! (y) :cool:

:eek: You must have the only milkweed for miles! :(

Did you pick the caterpillars up and put them on the squash and cukes, or did they find them on their own?

Counted 36 on one plant. They found the veggies on their own. There was a lot of native milkweed growing along the roads but it all got mowed down last month.

I brought in a bunch of the caterpillars to raise indoors to improve the survival rate. They are already building chrysalis so hopefully in a couple of weeks we will be releasing a new generation of monarch butterflies.

Have both regular and tall phlox. Both have been in the garden for years and are a favorite of the swallowtails. The tall phlox keeps showing up in areas where it was not planted!

One yard customer I work for has various tall phlox in their back yard that no one planted.
