Stopping things from eating my cabbages!

Something has been eating my cabbages! Without trying to sound like one of the 3 bears, my cabbages must be very tasty as they have all been nibbled to a greater or lesser extent!

I have decided to use 3 different deterrents to try and stop the pesky critters

1) copper tape around a plastic guard,

2) a sharp/jagged edge on the plastic guard

3) crushed grit and eggshells

Hopefully they will stop anything crawling up to the plants for a free buffet!
