My New Garden Guide

SproutRobit is gone....But, a new site, is very similar http://www.gardenate.com/.  So, this is what I planning on using this year.

Last year squash bugs got my pumpkins-they also got them the year before.  I actually did not even plant pumpkins last year, but had some great volunteers come up from the compost pile.  And, the squash bugs got them again.  So, over the winter I have done some research.  It seems that squash bugs do not like catnip, french marigolds, dill, petunias or nasturtiums.  So, I will be planting some of these in the raised beds this year with the melons, pumpkins, squash and cucumbers.

Later this weekend I plan on starting my garlic indoors.  Can't wait.
