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.

I found this pin & was surprised the types of flowers weren't identified: Sweet Potato Vine (lg. green leaves, center), Calibrachoa (Million Bells Terra Cotta), Bacopa (white), & not sure about the purple flower, but you could use the Pincushion flower (its similar). All can be planted in the Midwest in the summer.

How to cut herbs - for basil don't pluck leaves off, instead trim stem. Leave two sets of leaves on stem (leaves grow in pairs across from each other). Cut immediately above the second set of leaves from the ground. Plant will then grow new branches from this cut.
