Mr. Flower had an extra Sweet Banana Pepper plant.
He gave it to me to pop into one of my beds.
It was rather small, so I potted it up.
I wanted it to get bigger before putting it out in the real world.
I walked by its pot on the steps numerous times each day.
Yesterday, I looked down to see a barren green stem in the pot.
At first I suspected the little bunny that has been munching on my hostas.
Then I saw them,
The caterpillar poop/frass.
They looked like tiny grenades scattered around the base of the stark stem.
Another donation to nature! Poor little pepper plant.
