We had several garden beds this year, but my daughters far outweight any of mine. She planted a 20 cent pack of Zinna flowers all around her raised bed and it helped some how to keep the good bugs close, and keep the bad bugs far. I am so proud of her!! I had hundreds of bugs and tons of squash bugs. I need to buy some neem oil for next year. We try to do it all Organic, so didn’t spray anything. I had a friend swear by Neem oil, so plan to give that a try.
