I started a bunch from seeds and gave Greg a couple. His are now flipping huge! I'm so jealous.

I have so enjoyed growing these over and over. I even share. 😁 Any ideas on how to get rid of the little yellow bugs?

They are aphids and I just wipe them off with a gloved hand! I have also wiped them off with a paper towel and soapy water. @Racheltheredhead

#wildlife-Wednesday I was so proud of myself yesterday when I saw this little lady. I exclaimed,”it’s a monarch caterpillar!” I only knew this because one of you guys posted a photo and called it such. Thanks for making me look like a real plant nerd. 🐛 #mississippi #ms #south #zone8

I separated them to give them all room to grow.

Ok I separated them. Next time I know not to put so many seeds in one pot. They are easy to grow.
