Something is eating my cabbage! I don't see any pest but there are very visible round holes through all the new leaves. I think i also spotted some brown eggs. Any organic remedies?

The most common pest of cabbage is the little green cabbage worm. These pests are difficult to see - they're the same color as the cabbage. The botanical Bt (bacillus thuringensis) is a good control and is sold as Thuricide or Dipel in your garden center. Be sure to apply according to label directions. Best wishes with your cabbage.
