Vandals!


I've been admiring my young cabbages as they've grown stronger by the day, and only yesterday I was marvelling at how healthy they looked (having reached a diameter of more than 30cm).

This is what they looked like this morning:



I must say, that was some speedy work - three cabbages gone in one night! Several of my snow peas and sugar snap peas have been similarly munched.

.... sigh ....!

I'm not sure what ate them! I put out some (supposedly pet-friendly) smail and slug pellets last week, so maybe it was a very hungry caterpillar ....

i suffer from hungry possums at my place. they ate ALL my heabs in one night.
Spray the plants with a little chilli power diluted in water and see if the little buggers eat them then! (just remember to wash them before you eat them!!)
