This is my first time growing cabbage, and until last weekend they looked perfect. How quickly things change! Every day I look for cabbage worms, but they have already wreaked havoc.

My gardening book says to put pots of mint in between the plants. Does anyone know if this will work? I also see that bt is supposed to help. If you have any advice, I’d love to hear it!
