Chop Wood Carry Water Plant Seeds is a blog about Self-Sufficient Homesteading. How can we live by creating a sustainable bio-diverse world, instead of by consuming and destroying the only one we have? What kind of teaching have you got if you exclude nature?

Invasion of Brassica Parasites

 The garden looks lush and green but there is other stuff lurking in the green foliage which 
might destroy its appearance ... 
Im not sure what these worms are ... maybe the young Cabbage Worm? They
are on the underside of the leaves 
 Cabbage Aphids feeling at home ...
Large Cabbage worm taking mouthfuls of Purple Kale which
is apparently resistant to pests (roll eyes)
I'm not sure what to do but handpick them and spray the plants with Hot Pepper Spray (which you can make yourself with ground up 1/2 cup of hot peppers into 1 pint of water) every four to five days.
Will update after I test this ...
