We made 25 pounds of sauerkraut yesterday morning. We had to check the oute r layers of cabbage head leaves as there were frequently slugs under them; I think the slugs are the major cabbage predators in our area. Fortunately, our sheep enjoy getting the discarded leaves.
My wife sprays the cabbages if the damage becomes excessive.

Found the culprits. Went out to water at 23:00 or so. All three plans were swarming with earwigs.
So I squirted straight 7th generation disk soup on them and then put the water wand on "shower" The little bastards had to swim for it through the soapy water.
Probably do it again tonight.

i have three broccoli plants and three cauliflower plants. four days ago they were looking ok. today all but one of the plants is eaten back to the ribs/ridges of the leaves and the broccoli flower heads are gone too.
probably the groundhog got them.
i hate to have to trap animals to deal with, but this one is being a lot more intrusive into the fenced gardens than usual. :(

I bought a game camera which I put out in the garden at night. It uses infr ared light so the animals don't notice. Lots of activity out there after da rk. Last night I got a movie of a fox, who won't bother the garden, but a c ouple of raccoons were checking out the corn, which will ripen soon. I put traps out this afternoon. Like you, I hate to have to trap them, but they w on't leave anything for us if I don't.
