{dirt 60631} A Race for the Fennel Pollen

{dirt 60631} is a pictorial journal of Yvonne's garden journey in a Zone 5, Chicago city lot.

Every year I plant fennel ... the bulbs for salads, the fronds for smoking chicken, but mostly I grow it for the fennel pollen to add to savory dishes and salads.  This year I'm in competition with a swallowtail caterpillar for the fennel pollen.  The race is on, and I'm losing.  This little beauty is a voracious eater and has gotten to the fronds and pollen before me.  Sometime, you just have to give in.
