Far out brussel sprout

The veggie patch is coming along ridiculously well. It's like they're on steroids or something. The lettuce and the silverbeet are even starting to look... edible!

Pest control so far has involved spending 5 minutes a day pulling cheeky caterpillars off the leaves and squishing them, and scattering egg shells around the base of the plants to discourage cabbage moths from laying their eggs nearby.

Seeing this lady beetle made me so happy. I bet she was doing lady beetle magic, to make the carrots extra big and tasty.
