I finally got out into the garden yesterday for a little while. While I cannot plant everything for a few more weeks, I was able to plant our lettuce seeds because lettuce is a cool weather crop. If we do get down near the freezing mark, I will just cover all of the tender plants with sheets to keep them safe.
Of course, now that I am able to get back in the garden again, I need to start thinking about keeping bugs out of the garden naturally. I cannot stand bugs and I don’t want them to eat all of my vegetables after I put all that effort into growing a garden. However, I don’t want to spray the garden with toxic chemicals either. After all, I’m going to eat the vegetables and feed them to my family. Thankfully, there are natural solutions.
It is easy to keep bugs out of the garden naturally if you spend a bit of time each day in the garden. Get to know the insects that frequent your garden. Identify them and learn whether they are helpers or not. Not every insect that you see in your garden is bad. Learn the difference so that you can attract the good ones.
