The kale plants are doing really well – so well, they have needed to go under bigger cloches to keep the cabbage white butterflies off.
Fortunately, I had some super huge ones to hand. These have a tendency to blow away in the wind. Actually, they all do, even the smaller ones, but the biggest in particular could have been better designed. In other words, they need more loops at the bottom for pegs. So, it looks like that could be a winter project: sew more loops on.
That said, the plan is to remove the cloches, once the butterflies have stopped being a threat. This should be some time in October, which hopefully means I won’t have to contend with any wind issues either!
