my worm my foe

today ,june 25 2008, we discovered cabbage worms which were eating the collard greens , kale and swiss chard. We tried to pick them off by hand, we are still trying now as I write this. Ithink if the problem continues we will use a pesticide which is called BT Wealso looked up another organic pesticide I think is good for cabbage worms , it is called Ryania. We also discovered leafhoppers on the cilantro, which sucks the juice right out of the leaf ,and leaves a dry spot on the leaf, so Caroline cut the cilantro back quite a bit. We harvested Swiss chard, colard greens,and the rest of the romaine lettuce we pulled up from the root and harvested.We also staked the tomatoes Italian style ( with rope and stakes).

Our work for today

For the past few weeks we have been harvesting some of the plants that we have planted. So far we have harvested arugula, swiss chard, spinach, romaine lettuce, cilantro, snap peas, kale and collard greens. Even with as much as we have taken out of the ground, it is obvious by looking at what remains in the ground that we will be harvesting a lot for the entire season.
