Yes we are almost into November…and I have been busy getting my summer vegetable garden planted…mind you, someone forgot to tell mother earth about summer being on the way and the rain and cold days are getting a bit tiring!!!
I was listening to the radio this morning and heard a great idea on how to keep the white butterfly away from your brassicas. ….now they don’t start arriving until Dec so I have not tried it but I am going to!! Grow some extra lettuces (Just for this purpose) Pick a large handful of lettuce leaves and put into a bowl, pour over hot water. Leave to go cold and then pour the water into a sprayer and spray brassicas. This is meant to fool the white butterflies into thinking that the brassicas are lettuces….worth a try I reckon!!!!
