I hope you weren't expecting my vacation photos!

I went away for a three day weekend and came back to insect damaged cabbage. If you look closely, you'll see the culprit on the leaf to the left.....>

Ugh, Cabbage Moth Caterpillars.

I spent the morning after I got back picking them off.

Some were big like the one above, some were tiny like the ones on this leaf. There were a lot of them.

The cabbage will recover. I thank God for gardening gloves! Ewww!

Even though I tied my melon up with pantyhose, it slipped off it's stem while I was gone.
I guess I need support hose!

The cucumbers that were too small to pick are now a bit too large. (We'll still eat them!)

On the bright side, while I was away the turnips I planted sprouted.

Let the fall garden begin!
