My favorite summer vegetables are all from the cabbage family. Kale, Brussels sprouts, red and green cabbage are on every dinner plate once they’re ready. But as my husband puts it;
“The only thing worse than discovering one cabbage worm in my salad…is discovering a half-eaten one”.
Moths fluttering above your plants with lacy cabbage leaves below are a sure sign you have this problem too. Here’s my simple trick to kill cabbage worms that is safe for kids to apply.
Mix the following in a grocery sack:
2 cups All Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons cayenne pepper
Use a knife or pencil to punch holes in the bottom of the bag and sprinkle vigorously over your plants.
Sprinkle as often as you need to or after a large rain.
