I just came in from about an hour and half of weeding. Nice to have that completed.
What I noticed yesterday was the cabbage worm was going after you guessed it--my cabbage. So I picked off as many I could find and they went for a dive into soapy cup of water. I then saturated the cabbages with neem oil. This is the first year that I have used neem oil and I went out this morning and could find only one worm. Hopefully that is doing the trick.
I also noticed yesterday that the flea beetle was enjoying the leaves on my eggplant. So they were sprayed with neem.
The rest of the garden looks good, but I am concerned about my peas. They were planted March 11 and now some of the bottom leaves are turning yellow and I have only one flower. Usually it is 60 days to harvest these. We will see how this goes. They were looking great and this week they seem to have stopped growing. I hope it is not wilt.
Would love to hear from you on how you manage insects and other garden pests.
