You might try one more thing. Buy your seeds and plant them 1/2 way
through the summer. Cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts
all are crops that do better in the fall. In fact, Brussels sprouts taste
better after being frosted twice. I have been told frost makes there bitter
taste turn sweet.
Here in Kansas all the garden stores get seedlings that were started early,
and then you can plant them early. I haven't gotten them in the ground soon
enough to beat the loopers. I went to Wal-Mart and bought something
advertised to be safe on veggies and used it. It worked great However, the
plants I grew myself and planted in June or July did a lot better and
without as much of a pest problem.
