    Leaves Gone!

    Earlier some of my parsley had quite a bit of leaves gone, I figured something was nibbling, but it was not too bad.

    Today I came home from work and all of the leaves are gone from my zucchini - chewed off, just stalks and blossoms remaining...... I am ready to scream!

    Rabbits ~ one of my gardening friends swears by human urine (around not ON the plants icon_lol.gif). Some folks resort to wire cages too. I don't care how cute rabbits appear to be ~ I can't stand the sight of them!

    I thought of rabbits too, it just seemed like a lot of leaves for them to get through. IOr maybe the groundhog is back.

    If you have a rabbit or groundhog problem your plants would be eatin to the ground. This is the time of year that parsley worm and horn worm do major damage to gardens. In the early evening or early morning, take a real close look at your plants... you might find these creatures enjoying your garden.

    I did not see any worms, and there weren't any on the tomato plants immediately adjacent. But I will take another look.

    Sometimes they are very hard to see, they are well camoflaged!

    Look on the underside of stems and leaves.
    I had a horn worm eating my crops that took me a week to find, be persistant and you will find them.

    I had worms 2 years ago that went through 2 tomato plants, 4 parsley plants and my baby cucumber within 2 days. They quick little buggers. I couldn't see them, and then all of a sudden, I only found 2, but I'm sure there were more. Ever single leave GONE!

    No worms or bugs that I can find and no other leaves damaged. One of the plants might rally, not a lot of hope for the others, but I'm keeping them watered. I think it had to have been rabbits - why eat the tough stalks when there are so many tender leaves....

    Ran into my neighbor's son - he said the groundhog has been munching on their tomatoes - it or rabbits might be munching the baby zukes too - poor little plants are gamely fighting on.

    Someone said to scatter cat hair around the plants - seems to scare at least the squirrels and possibly other beasties. Gonna grab that kitty of mine as soon as I get home!

    With the heat and drought here in Missouri this summer critters are eating anything that has moisture even if it is not their normal food. If you are where it's hot and dry your munchers could be anything. My hummer feeders have been sucked dry by little bees. Birds are munching on my few tomatoes.

    Japanese beetles are eating the rhubard leaves, fortunately I don't need those. Birds are pecking at the peaches.
