The Milkweed Diaries

Since it has been over 90 degrees every day lately, blogging in the nice cool house is more and more apealling.

So here are a few updates and enhancements to previous posts....

First (above), the much-hyped photo of CF on cabbage moth patrol in the garden with pool net in PJs. Apparently he has developed a very effective method for total cabbage moth annihilation. And it fits with the permaculture practice of "stacking functions" because it provides fine entertainment for me at the same time.

Despite the fact that we have not sprayed BT (yet), the brassicas are kicking it out--see below.

Broccoli and cauliflower

Kales and cabbages

Brassica explosion!

Also, the Cherokee black beans are up (see the remnants of the bean still on the sprout?)

And the red mustards are HUGE (see below).

I think that's all I have to report for now. Keep on rockin (vegetables) in the free world, as they say.....
