We grow our vegetables without pesticides or herbices which means bugs usually get more food then we do!! Raising vegetables in this way is labor intensive but well worth the effort knowing that the food we eat and sell is as health and delicious as possible. We start our own plants from heritage or heirloom seeds purchased from Seed Savers or Back Creek Heirloom Seed Co. Once transplanted to the garden it is all up to mother nature to provide everything the plants need, soil, sun light and rain. We hoe the weeds and hand pick the bugs. We are looking into organic methods of bug control as this season was a wopper for bugs! Hoping adding birdhouses that we make will go a long way towards control.
