I harvested my first bit of lettuce from the garden today, enjoyed it in a tuna salad.

All of my different lettuces are healthy and so seem all of the many different other plants we are growing… All but the Brussels sprouts.  They are planted in several different locations and all have holes in the leaves.  I have looked high and low and cannot seem to find any bugs.  Any suggestions as to what kind of bug they may be and what I can do about the culprits?

Thank you,

Probably cabbage loopers.  Treat ’em with Bt.  Make sure you check the expiration date on the container, since Bt is a live bacteria. 

BTW:  I was in error when I told you 1 drop per ounce for the Concentrace.  It should be 1 drop per 2 ounces of water, if you want it to taste good.
