Cue eerie music.....
Holes in the Brussels Sprouts leaves!
Holes in the Swiss Chard!
Holes in the Sugar Snap Peas leaves!
Well...I'm not sure what was going on with the Snap Peas.
They were about done, anyway. And, they had what looked like some powdery mildew.
BUT....the others have WORMS!
I'm not sure if these are Imported Cabbageworms,
or Cabbage Loopers. I didn't see the moth stage.
But, the result is the same. They've made a mess.
And, they're setting in to make even more of these!
Some are large...some are very small.
You can judge the size of the one above, by comparing to the Pillbug.
Oh, yeah...we have lots of pillbugs, too.
So, the Brussels Sprouts got pulled out. I checked EACH LEAF, and dispatched each worm.
I checked over the Chard...found two good sized DARK green worms, and dispatched them.
They didn't do as much damage. I'll check again later today.
The Brussels Sprouts had grown into huge plants. Nice looking plants.
I don't think we were going to get sprouts. It's getting too hot.
But, they were trying. See those little buds?
Some other huge plants...these cilantro plants are five feet tall!
I had no idea they got that big.
Then there's this....yellow fungus.
It's very strange.
Jeepers creepers! What is going on?
Just more challenges for a gardener.
NOTE: Darla from Florida, gave us the name of this.
'Dog Vomit Fungus'. Appropriate name.
Thanks to all of you, for your input on the Lamb's Ear in the Island Bed.
It will stay, for now.
It certainly seems to like where it is.
OK...I better get back out there on worm patrol.
