On Guard!

I am curious what is this cabbage moth?cabbage white butterfly? up to on the snow pea flower. It did not fly away as I came closer even though we were 30cm apart from each other. I don’t think his camouflage tactic is working if he thought he was fooling me. Hope you are not laying more eggs on our brassicas or has it just undergone metamorphosis. Larkspur and snow peas are having height competition now. So far snow pea is leading.

In the local newspaper gardening section, caution has been given about snail and slug attack when the weather gets warmer and they will have voracious appetite.

Sakit hati, ya? If the snails love it, it must be delicious. Can be harvested already?

Snails are really fat glutton pests! They can eat real fast, luckily they cannot move as fast, otherwise it will be very difficult to catch. I remember when I was a little girl back in kampung, my mom, sisters and myself used to catch snails in our garden at night. My mom says that they always appear in the night feasting! It is true, we always catch dozens of them. We sprinkle salt on the head and body and it will die. That's gross! I know, but when we were kids, we enjoy these night adventures! My sisters and I will see who catches the most snails!

Looks like I have to share with them. The veggies won't look pretty. Important is it has many nutrient and chemical free:)

I really don't like the snails and slugs. They seem to have found paradise and enjoying your veggies. I think Kitchen Flvaours has a good solution.
