How not to grow rocket

Alas, another pestilent plague has wreaked havoc on our produce. This time the unfortunate victim was Tea Stew’s rocket. And who was the culprit? Yep, you guessed it.

Caterpillars.

Again.

They’ve nommed their way so successfully through it that we’ve given up all hope of eating any. Instead we have martyred our beloved vegetable to the cause of preventing dwindling butterfly numbers. Perhaps they might leave us enough to get some seeds out of it.
