This is the cabbage plants I planted the other day in my greenhouse.

Bet your chickens love to eat those catapillers. Hate the white moths have them here too.

I had cabbage root maggots & carrot flies until I planted buckwheat as a covercrop in my garden. It really does work for a couple years beyond turning it under. I have chickens now to work the soil in winter & they do a great job along with their chicken manure tea applied every 3 weeks on the leaves & stems to small transplants of the cabbage group. The plants love it & even though those white moths hover around, there was no root damage & very few green catapillers.

Glad you got rain. Not so glad we did it is a slick of ice out there. Marsha got to work and Dorothy got to the dentist so I have to quit postponing going to Dorothy's to clean her house. Almost 11 AM here and it is thawing out, sun is shinning.

Glad to hear you have not been caught in that heavy snowfall. Saw it on the news, unbelievable. We have had follow up rain today, it very humid, its monsoonal rain thats come down from Qld where they had floods. Not cold at all. It will help things to grow again.

Glad the bugs stay out for you. Well it is warmer than first predicted and going to get up to 50 around here soon too. Woo hooo. So glad I'm not in NY.  I told Marsha a little bit ago while we were watching the news about their 6 plus ft of snow that at least my house would be more insulated in that blanket of snow.

I need to bring in some pots of herbs. Everything froze off so time to bring them in to revive them. Was thinking about it and some of that stuff was in the pots/boxes last year waiting for the move.

Every once in a while a bee or fly will get in but I haven't had any problems yet. First time I planted cabbage inside. I fertilized the dirt good before planting so hopefully they do well. When I plant them outside the cabbage worms get to them, I plant them in the spring time and I should plant them in the fall.

Today supposed to be 29 day time 14 night then start to warm up a bit. May get freezing rain tonight. I HATE WINTER! Wish I had a greenhouse set up. My dream is to have a survival greenhouse built into the little hill where the trailer is now. Hope your cabbage do what you want. I'm not supposed to eat them and here they get big gray aphid so I quit growing them.Do you have any problems w/bugs in the greenhouse or does it keep them away? Same here w/trees and their leaves. Some had dropped before it turned nasty. I still have so many things in pots and boxes guess it will be a crap shoot come Spring to see what survives.

We will be getting into the 50's today for first time in a week and a half. Had to turn the heater on in the well house for 2 nights. Well all living things have died in garden and the trees still have there leaves on, we didn't have a fall here it went straight to old man winter. I have 5 cabbage plants growing in the green house, I can't wait to see how they turn out. I have a 2 x 6ft bed in there so I can do stuff like this. I left the water on in there as well and it didn't freeze but I am going to insulate the pipes under the sink. It was 60 degrees in there the other day when it was 22 outside

Keeping warm enough as long as the wind isn't blowing thru. But the heater seems to run all the time since it was freezing and below. The news just told us we will get up to 49 but Sun day and up to 30s nights woooo hooo. I HATE WINTER AND It just started.
