Those experienced gardeners can probably guess what my cry is about.
One day I had beautiful lettuce leaves growing and the next morning I have this:
(only my spinach is left)
What could do this much damage overnight? My hubby told me it was the caterpillars he was picking off the remains. I did not believe him. They are too small to wreck that much havoc in such a short amount of time. Right? Nope, he is right.
So I sprayed (again) all my plants to try and get rid of these critters. Next morning I checked. I still have spinach. Holey spinach. More caterpillars. Did someone send out a mass text to all the caterpillars to tell them the dinner party was going on at my house? I sprayed some more. Found some migrating over to my carrots. Sprayed a lot more.
On a happier note … my sweet potatoes are ready to be planted!
