Get Orff My Cabbages!

Late July is a good time to spot the Cabbage White Butterfly in my garden. As you can see from the picture, they move around pretty fast.

They get their name because their children like cabbages. In fact, the feckless creatures lay their eggs on my Sea Kale, bugger off and leave the caterpillars to fend for themselves!

That's why I do a tour of inspection every week and when I find the eggs, I crush them with a fingernail.
Hint: Look on the underside of the leaves
