Fairly sure the little maggots that killed all my kale are cabbage root fly larvae. I keep reading there is no fix for this once they are there. I had the kale in a raised garden bed with several other vegetables -- is there any way to save these? I pulled out all the kale and scooped up a lot of the soil on that side of the bed. I have zuchinni, eggplant, peppers and tomatoes in there.
And, can I still eat some kale leaves that I harvested before they completely got to one plant? I know they were in the roots though.
Also, I bought these plants as transplants -- is it possible they were already infected when I brought them home? I didn't plant until late May.
:/ very sad for all my little veggies.
