When I went out the other day to plant the broccoli and cabbage I noticed a whole slew of chimney-like clusters all over the bed where my zucchini were. Oddly, they were clustered around where the stems of the zucchini were leading into the ground. Could it be part of the life cycle of the SVB moth? I'm thinking possibly. We are just dog gone lucky enough to have two life cycle seasons of the blasted moth each year, so I'm thinking that may be part of it's life cycle being that they weren't in any either bed.
I was stupid enough to beat each to a bloody pulp before I took a picture and can't find any on the Internet. I'm hopeful I got them all, that's for sure. I'll go out there and look again this weekend to make sure they were obliterated because if their not from the SVB moth, I'm relatively certain they were from something nefarious.
The morning comes early. Especially when your 3 yr old girl wakes up at 3:30 singing "Scooby-Dooby-Do where are you?". Sweet gardening dreams.
