Re: [fukuoka_farming] Buffalo cucurbaticin on sqush summer planting?
For the cucumber Beetle and many other hungrey i have
had some luck with a tea made of the Itaian Dandelion
greens or Catalogna good for us to eat but have not
found any insects slugs or snails that eat it. strain
the tea and spray it on some control plants and see
what you think many only take one time for the life of
the plant. stinging nettle sounds very interesting
also and fresh cut is very important.
