Subject: pesticides in the garden
Date: September 7, 2011 at 8:11 pm PST

I recently moved into a new home and I am on an acre of land that is mostly wooded. I started a late garden and I had one collard greens plant that was growing well but then one day I saw holes in it and the next day there was nothing but stems! My tomato plants were attacked by those green tomato catepillars and I have been trying to find them, remove them and put them yards away from my tomatoes and that has been working so far. I really have always been against any type of hebicides and pesticides, and I really want to begin planting some cool weather lettuces but after I saw what happened to my collard greens plant I doubt I will have any greens to eat after the bugs are done with them. My parents said I will always have problems because I am basically "in the woods." Any suggestions???
Oh, and I also have beautiful deer that visit my garden but I am not worried about them because I can alway put a fence around it - I didn't bother this year because I planted so late.
