They have started their invasion. Squash bugs. Creeps. Pyrethrum can help control the buggers; but I simply ripped out the pumpkin vines and did the Garden Croc Stomp on as many of them as I could. Pyrethrum may need to be applied because you know that I had to have missed one or two – million! The garden continues to be overrun with pill bugs too. Diatomaceous Earth is supposed to be a great, natural way to control these cousins to shrimp. I’ve never used it and will learn more about it with a visit to my local nursery. I blame heavy seedling loss to pill bugs. They simply need to get under control to allow my lettuce to flourish this winter.These creeps have got to go.
Imagine my delight tomorrow when I say, “It’s October!”.
