Minerds Bell Salad Garden has caterpillars...

It has been a few weeks since we embarked on our journey to grow green thumbs, Liz and Hayley are tending the garden daily and it's flourishing nicely! We've planted a mint, taken home parsley, oregano and chives, added lettuce to our lunches and are patiently waiting for our first cherry capsicum to be ready.

However... (insert gloomy music here) we have caterpillars. Liz and Hayley have been plucking leaves with any traces of caterpillars or their babies from the pots. They have exiled the nasturtium to it's own pot far away from the rest of the garden and placed the mint in the middle of the garden in the hopes that the caterpillars will pack their bags and leave... unfortunately it seems that they are here to stay. If you have any tips or tricks to solve our dilemma we would appreciate some help!
