After the heat-wave in late May the blueberries ripened like wildfire, the Colorado potato beetle larva peppered the Pontiac potato patch and the cabbage worms nearly devoured my kale.
I pick and squish and drown but so much was happening at once I needed a little assistance.
As you know, I do not use chemical pesticides in the vegetable garden. I will reach for a bio-insecticide if I must, however.
Bio-insecticides include plant oils and compounds, naturally occurring bacteria, viruses and protozoa.
