Wonder how well that would work in a 40' by 100' garden?
My cucumber leaves looked like leaf skeletons. Every tomato had at minimum one hole in it, most had three, some had more. I took to picking the tomatoes about the time they started to turn orange and ripened them on the counter... but having 300 tomatoes on the counter left little room for normal activities.. the tomato plants grew so hard and fast they crushed the wire supports I had put around them, it was just difficult to keep ahead of the bugs.
Cabbage and lettuce were both thoroughly bored through in dozens of places. Sweet corn.. I managed to save some half ears by breaking them in half to get rid of the myriad of little black beetles and green worms. Peas were a total write off. beans as well. Everything that sprouted on them was devoured until they finally died. Radishes faired OK, but lots of holes in leaves and holes in SOME radishes.
My peppers seemed to be unaffected by anything, as did my onions. Both produced exceptionally well, but ripening my tomatoes on the counter left the salsa a little more blah than I like it.
I need to figure something out.. I will try the soap and vinegar.. anyone know what effect that will have on corn silks? If I must, I can walk through the rows and spray every ear as they begin to develop..
