I hate to sound so cynical, but I've tried dozens of "green" concoctions to keep stripped beatles off my sweet corn, aphids off my maters, worms off my brocolli..........it's all crap so far. The bugs just give me the finger and keep on eating. Anyone have any recipees that actually WORK?
How about companion planting? (The three sisters - corn, beans and pumpkins)
Again ... some people will say it works (I'm one of them :)) and other say it's a crock. I like to plant Marigolds and herbs, here and there and all around.
