    Pick off all the caterpillars.  The overwintering stuff should recover, kale , brussels etc. Summer cabbage might be a write off.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Okey dokes....thanks....too many to pick off...there are dozens on each plant.....good news is theres no more leaves to munch on! is there an organic ,no harm method other than harvesting caterpillars?
