Mission: Contain Cabbageworms

One thing I know I am NOT going to do this year is let the cabbageworms get the best of me. Imported cabbageworms are common all across the U.S. They were introduced from Europe in the 1800s, and the caterpillars love to chew ragged holes in the leaves and flower buds of all members of the brassica family.

Dirt Work

Itā€™s early spring, and that means that Iā€™m spending a lot of time preparing the soil in the garden beds prior to planting.
