Death this month for us came in stages. Some of the death was by a nefarious fiend who yet remains unnamed, others forceably inflicted, and still other deaths were by ignorance or behalf of the gardener.
You can see the damage to the collards in the posts below. It seems like there's a trifecta of trouble causing entities in the yard. My broccoli from a few days ago was obviously nibbled on by the dog. Later that week, some cauliflower stalks were reaped and left there whole which makes me think cut worm. Then this weekend the collards in both the other corner yard and the side yard were all eaten entirely. You can see those pictures in the previous post. It's very odd that whatever went after the collards was very particular and ONLY got the collards and not the other plants as well.
This carnage was from earlier this month. When it came time to get the fall crops in, the poorly performing peppers and the moderately successful okra had to go. I went ahead and pulled out the bush beans in the other corner yard because they were irritating me with how small and thin they were. No more bush beans for me, my friends.
