my sprouts are getting holes in the leaves what is it?



Caterpillars probably you need to pick the little blighters off and squash them.

If the holes are very small then it's more likely to be flea beetles. You can get a chemical spray to control them, but the name escapes me for the moment! (Damned senior moments!) :o)

You can also get an organic garlic concentrate which you add to water and spray on this should keep the flea beetle down. Or sacrifice a plant or two the beetles need to live too. As to the chemicals we don't use them.
