somethings eating my cabbage/cauliflower !


Well not having much luck with these again this year..
They were very slow to germinate and I final got them in and they were looking well…not very big though..
Few weeks on and something has completely eaten the leaves..I had put slug pellets down so don’t think it was slugs….have any of you any ideas?

…I have made a bit of a scarecrow incase it maybe pigeons.
Also have some new seeds germinating in the greenhouse.
Maybe get some later on, I’m so determined as I did not have any last year…

better late than never, as they say…LOL
