Winning the battle of the brassicas July 13, 2010

Canes cobbled together - but they work!

Last year, my brassicas were destroyed by the pesky cabbage white caterpillar so this year I was determined not to get caught out again.

The result is this lash-up of netting and canes. It might not be pretty but it seems to be working – so far. Had to make a bigger ‘cage’ for the red kale and cavalo nero last weekend because the leaves were starting to poke out of the netting. Hopefully this current configuration will do the job.

What does everyone else do to keep out caterpillars? Can I improve my cage, do you think?
