I'm so new I don't know the language yet. My first post concerned aphids on my Marsh Milkweed, posted this morning. I've been removing some plants from my kitchen garden that were damaged by Irene on Saturday. While taking down my 10 ft. cucumber cage, I found a Monarch chrysalis attached to the rebar cage. This location is about 45 feet from the milkweed plants and the cat would have to cross an open heavily grassed yard to get to the cage. Is it possible that eggs were laid on the cucumber vines? The foliage was so thick I lost several large cucumbers, so I wouldn't have seen this if it occurred that way.
