Caterpillars

Just an observation. Over many years of growing Brussel Sprouts and Purple Sprouting Broccoli, it was only ever the sprouts which were troubled by caterpillars. until last year when neither were troubled. Yesterday, i picked off several scores of the grubs only on the Broccoli. Just the fascination of nature!

  • They've attacked practically every veg i've got here. Spinach, radish, all Brassicas etc.
    I've got one Spring cabbage which will go straight to compost as there is hardly anything left of it. I have to go over the whole patch every two days on a squishing mission.
    I think the radish was the only root veg they hit though, they left the others alone so it's almost a rule!
