Encouraging Cole Crops and trying to Defeat Manduca quinquemaculata

Cabbage and Broccoli planted on Tuesday as seen today:

Green cabbage in the two trays nearest the camera.

A teeny red cabbage emerges.

Broccoli; green cabbage to the right.


After I admired the Cole Sprouts, I shook the tomato limbs
in hopes a bit of pollen would reach its goal.

Then I saw THIS. Manduca quinquemaculata caterpillar.
Tomato hornworm.
Aaack!
