That blows. Well, you could plant a "trap crop" of eggplants & a couple sacrificial squash at the end of each row and hope most of the buggers head there. Or, if all else fails, switch to hoop house varieties you can grow under cover.

Thanks for the videos! As for giblets, where I come from, everyone knows you can't make a good Thanksgiving gravy without the giblets! And, we use the liver, too.

I've gotten pretty big plants from the nursery in sixpacks that turned out nice. Maybe they just feed them more. 


There's a "plain" (Mennonite) greenhouse I always try to go to for annual flowers when I visit my mother and sister because of the great prices and healthy plants.  Last summer, I asked one of the girls what they feed their plants, especially the flowers, that made them grow so healthy.  She told me they used some "balanced" fertilizer cooked up by one of their Mennonite relatives who farms and that they fed all the plants EVERY DAY with a dilute solution of it.  Kind of like hydroponics, I suppose.

alkhall, I'm curious what growing zone you're in.
