Wee Beasties

So first things first, the garden saw some fatalities this week. The bedding out vegetables I planted about a month ago, were hard hit. There will be no Cauliflower, all four plants out of the game. One Brussel Sprout was hit, and I am anticipating the rest to follow suit. It would appear that the Purple Kale (of which I have no intention of eating…) may be the strongest of the lot.

Oh well, this is the garden of experiments – as luck would have it, only after the discovery of wilted plants, then pulling them up and finding grubs/maggots on the roots – did I find this information online Mistakes to Avoid… 

Alright, alright I will know for next year. At this point I am going to focus on what is still alive and celebrate their continued growth, make offerings to the garden gods that no more pests find their way to my house, and pray for just a little (well a lot) less wind! To be noted: there are many baby grasshoppers about. 

 
And that is how I feel about Cabbage Grubs 😦
