“Learn to identify the most common garden pests and what you can do to control them.

The following list of pest descriptions and control measures provides a good starting point for tackling pest control in gardens throughout the United States and Canada. Control solutions are listed in order of environmental friendliness. Botanical sprays, which can have detrimental effects on beneficial insects and other animals, should be used only as a last resort.”

Organic farming is the form of agriculture that relies on crop rotation, green manure, compost, biological pest control, organically approved pesticide application and mechanical cultivation to maintain soil productivity and control pests. Organic farming excludes or strictly limits the use of synthetic fertilizers and synthetic pesticides, plant growth regulators, livestock antibiotics, food additives, and genetically modified organisms.

Truth be known I’m a Miracle-Gro kind of guy.

Joe: It looks like you have a bumper crop of peaches. I'll have to check some of your additions.

OH MY---I'll be there very soon to get some peaches... YUM!!!!!

Don't know what we'd do without Miracle Gro, Joe. We use it on our flower gardens also.

Have a great weekend.

I like your garden guy. Reminds me of a Gumby-ish Stress Paul that my friend (yes, Paul) keeps on his desk. Helps, somehow!
