Boy/Girl Flowers and Cabbage? please?
so i wake up and find that green cabbage caterpillars have eaten nearly half the heads of my beautiful cabbages. at this point should i just pull them out and start over?? i'm heart broken.
as far as my zukes (in another bed), well my boy flowers don't come up at the same time as my girl flowers, and their supposed to, right? so they can get pollinated? i think that's why i'm having such a sucky yield. i planted 4 plants on may 12 (2 yellow straight neck and 2 green), and i've only harvested 6 total - 2 that weren't edible due to yellowing at the blossom end, and the other 4 were fine, just less than 4 inches long and less than half inch round. i'm pretty sure it's not BER as i have tomatoes, peppers, and green beans in the same bed and all are doing great.
so what do you think?
