We made 25 pounds of sauerkraut yesterday morning. We had to check the outer layers of cabbage head leaves as there were frequently slugs under them; I think the slugs are the major cabbage predators in our area. Fortunately, our sheep enjoy getting the discarded leaves.

My wife sprays the cabbages if the damage becomes excessive.

Hi Paul,

Yes, that's pretty well eaten up.

Found the culprits. Went out to water at 23:00 or so.
All three plans were swarming with earwigs.

So I squirted straight 7th generation disk soup
on them and then put the water wand on "shower"
The little *******s had to swim for it through
the soapy water.

Probably do it again tonight.

i have three broccoli plants and
three cauliflower plants. four days
ago they were looking ok. today all but
one of the plants is eaten back to the
ribs/ridges of the leaves and the
broccoli flower heads are gone too.

probably the groundhog got them.

i hate to have to trap animals to
deal with, but this one is being a lot
more intrusive into the fenced gardens
than usual.

I bought a game camera which I put out in the garden at night. It uses infrared light so the animals don't notice. Lots of activity out there after dark. Last night I got a movie of a fox, who won't bother the garden, but a couple of raccoons were checking out the corn, which will ripen soon. I put traps out this afternoon. Like you, I hate to have to trap them, but they won't leave anything for us if I don't.
