Wow! The cole crops must thrive in your cooler temps. Is it too cold for slugs up there? I don't see any chewed leaves. All the plants look so healthy.

Thanks
Well we have slugs, cut worms, & flies, moths & millers that lay eggs. Most insect attacks are on the roots or at the stalk/soil interface so the above ground plant looks healthy until they cut it off or destroy the roots. If the garden is weed free & dry slugs seems to not like to traverse the dry soil or have hiding places, but if it's a rainy year the game changes.
So far no real bad beetles but as the climate warms, the experts say, we may get them.
