Front Yard Veggies

You can’t grow everything you eat, but you can eat everything you grow…

potatoes again, maybe

So my last attempt at potatoes failed (pretty badly it turns out) due to some pest, I think pill bugs, so I think that I am inspired by this to try again.  It involves building things, so that’s good.  It is a great example of intensive gardening, so that’s good.  I will employ some methods to keep pill bugs at bay, organically of course, so that’s good too.

What do you use to deal with pill bugs and other arthropod plagues? We’ve been spraying with Bt, but it just doesn’t seem to *do* anything to the aphids or their kin. There’s ladybugs, but they’re expensive and, well, flighty.

Zane – diatomaceous earth has seemed to work for me in the past. I believe that sinking cups of beer in the ground has also worked well, even better than for slugs.

aaron – right, the bags are nice, but do not involve building anything!
