Warm summer days mean you need to be on the look out for summer garden pest. People seem to approach pest control with two attitudes: the chemical warfare approach or the homemade remedy approach. What is lacking in both of these approaches is an understanding of insects life cycles and insect feeding habits and how the approach kills insects and how the pesticide is intended to manage your problem. You have to know your enemy to be successful. Learn how to best handle cabbage worm, corn eagworms and squash bugs organically.
- Growing Organic
My husband and I own 5 acres in New Harmony, Utah. Being self-reliant and wise stewards of our land has always been a priority. I have been growing a garden and raising berries, herbs, vegetables, and fruit organically for 10 years. Through extending the season and preserving food we produce much of our own food. I believe with a little wisdom and effort anyone can be successful in gardening. We have home schooled our children for the last 21 years and are now empty nesters. It was a treasured journey and now I'm enjoying watching my children begin this same adventure with our grandchildren. Along with gardening our we have chickens, ducks, and dairy goats. I enjoy many interests including sewing, quilting, cooking, reading, archery, target shooting, preparedness, and making my own lotions and soaps. Our family goal has been to love the Lord, liberty, and learning. Each day brings new challenges and adventures and great opportunities.
