Russell Howk, age 3, of New Ulm, touches the caterpillar he made Tuesday at the New Ulm Public Library. A class, which was led by Master Gardener intern Lisa Pelzel, showed the children how to create a “Harry Caterpillar’ by planting grass seed in soil inside a nylon stocking. With proper care, the seeds will sprout and there will be a dense clump of grass in each section of the caterpillar.
