Sprinkle Baking Soda on Cabbages (and other Brassicas) to Thwart Caterpillars If those small green cabbage worms have been making Swiss cheese of your cabbage, broccoli, and kale plants, try this trick: Make a 50/50 combination of flour and baking soda, and dust it all over whichever plants the cabbage worms are eating. They'll eat the combo while munching the leaves, and die within a day or so. Repeat as necessary..
If this really works...how totally awesome???!!!! Garden Tower Project » The Homestead Survival vertical planter with a worm tower in the center really works. You add kitchen scraps into the center tower which creates a compost tea that drips out the bottom which you add back into the plants. Each hole can grow a different plant. 50 plants in 4 sq. ft.- Strawberries, lettuce, herbs, flowers... endless possibilities!
