I use salted water, too.

Here we are, Joan--photos! Cauliflower and a cabbage (with caterpillar and a work glove for size reference).

Good tip about salted water Don.

When I begin to have a cabbage worm problem, I go out in the morning and pluck them off the cabbages. Takes five minutes. And I let my harvested broccoli sit for a hour or so in a bowl of salted water. They don;t like that at all.

Larry, I DO have cabbage "worms", esp. on broccoli. I use a bT spray or garlic soap if they really get bad. I've eaten my fair share of the little rascals!

Randy, you surely give us a tease about your hint of huge cauliflower plant(s), giant cabbages and nice broccoli, beans, and sweet potatoes. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 29, 2014 at 8:48pm

@Larry, I haven't had any aphids, either, but I attributed it to the lady bugs I let lose in the garden. Maybe I am giving them more credit than they deserve. Also haven't had many mosquitos. Go figure.

@Daniel, you take such good care of your Bambi and Thumper! 

Comment by Larry on September 29, 2014 at 7:34pm

@Randall Smith -- How do you keep worms off your cabbage and broccoli?   I have a very hard time with them.   Seems they always win.  Funny thing, for last three years we've had LOTS of aphids, and this year, NOT ONE.  Strange, eh?  But we do have flea beetles on our mustard greens and turnips.   Boooooo!

If I wasn't so lazy, I'd take a picture of my huge cauliflower plant(s) growing in the "godless garden". I could include giant cabbages and nice broccoli. I've pulled my bean plants to dry and extract hard beans later. I'm also eager to dig sweet potatoes. They've mounded up tremendously, which indicates large tubers!

Bertold yor trolls are less picky than mine. Bambi and Thumper do eat tulips, muscari, crocus, but leave daffodills and scilla / hyacinthoides alone. They are not supposed to eat anemones, but they did not read the book.
Comment by Bertold Brautigan on September 25, 2014 at 8:55pm

SB - I've tried to add daffodils, crocus, tulips, etc. but it seems there are little trolls all about that devour anything resembling a bulb that I stick in the ground over the winter. Whatever it is, squirrels probably, they don't seem to cotton to dahlias, but nothing else with a bulb lasts around here.
