Herb Garden Update

Remember how we planted a herb garden at the beginning of September? Well had I shown you photos of it a few weeks ago it would have looked full of luscious looking herbs, but I waited too long. We've had quite a few days of over 38 degrees and the coriander (cilantro) went to seed. To add insult to injury a small bug or grasshopper has eaten the rest of the coriander and the mint AND the basil. The bug must not like the parsley or the spring onion as they remain untouched.

Have you had this happen in your garden? What did you do to stop it? I've rigged up a possible solution of a fly net and sticks. Hopefully it keeps the bugs away. I'll keep you posted.
