Uninvited Dinner Guests
Yesterday I discovered my first pest in my community garden plot this year. I think they are flea beetles, but please correct me if I am wrong. The were really enjoying the broccoli. I've never been bothered by them before, so I don't have much experience getting rid of them. The first remedy that I tried was to spray them with some water. That only worked for about 30 seconds. They were soon back. Today I will head back to the garden to try what I usually try next for any insect problem. I'll wet the plants and then sprinkle the plants with garlic powder. If that doesn't work, I'll start searching for other organic solutions.
