I cut a bunch of garlic scapes and put them around the plants as an anti-pest measure. Squash bugs and potato beetles have been an issue in the past so I’m starting the preventative measures now!
Most “bad” bugs don’t like garlic. Garlic sprays may work better, but this was a VERY simple, fast anti-pest solution.
Plus now the plants have stylish accessories!
They’re kind of like flea collars! Or hula hoops:
I don’t really do anything with the feverfew, but the more flowers and herbs you have in the garden, the more defenses you have against the “bad” bugs!
