The Silkworm Diaries

Looking for a Good Spot

I made my last leaf run today — it’s so easy now, the leaves are way bigger than the worms. I picked a couple that were the size of my hand.


I feel like the silkworms don’t like the egg cartons. They seem to be wandering around an awful lot. One worm, that had walled himself in and started to spin around yesterday, abandoned his spot last night.

I don’t remember this happening last time — but maybe I wasn’t watching them so obsessively. Last year, for example, I didn’t notice the little pools of stuff purged from their stomachs.

Here’s the stuff they vomit up to clean out their stomachs. Their final poops are different, too, greener and less digested.
