cabbage woes

Post  obrdrln on 6/2/2012, 4:40 pm

So the little green wormies got to two of my cabbage plants. Both look pretty ragged---what's left of them. Do I pull 'em up and try again in the fall or give the new inner leaves a chance? Only skeletons of the largest leaves are left. WaaaAAA!!

If they were mine, I would search for and squish any remaining worms, then cover the plants with tulle.

You can make hoops for each square with 9 gauge wire and the use butterfly clips or clothes pins to clip on cheese cloth or tulle fabric to keep it in place. Works very well. Amazon.com has tulle facbric for $0.99 a yard.

Those white buttertflys are the culprit. They lay their eggs.. eggs turn into those green eating machines. I think I got the ciycle right.

Japnese pay more money for the vegetables with the holes in them. Shows no poison was used.
