My vegetable garden is officially planted. I have all of my seeds in rows, my tomatoes in cages and my potatoes are hilled.
And so it begins . . . another season of growing vegetables, but also of keeping the bugs at bay. Last year I had limited success because I tested several untried techniques, including some old wives tales that didn’t work. This year I have refined my skill at companion planting and am determined to do better at protecting my crops by using natural methods of stopping the bug invasion.
Here are the strategies I am going to use in case you need a little help as well.
