Podcast: Tomato Pest Control

     When you're growing an organic garden, learning about organic pest control is a must.  Especially in the desert environment, we are teaming with life.  Almost everywhere you look you could be dealing with vine borers.  Instead of getting control of them after a few pumpkins and watermelons have wilted, prevent them to begin with.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     Start with planting out your pumpkin field with radishes 2 months before you set seedlings.    Borers will be ready to lay their eggs in the soil and they know radishes won't be on their larvae's food list.
