|row cover at work in the field|
In the battle again bugs, on the road to providing you with aesthetically pleasing vegetables I myself very satisfied and a huge supporter of the row cover.
Flea beetles...a tiny all black bug that's a fast jumper and leaves young plants looking like a Dalmatian puppy minus cuteness...

The like young plants and early spring the best. Things they hate...shade and rain.
Flea beetles come up from the ground so with row covers you still have some damage but you're containing the problem...you're not letting every flea beetle with in the field in...just a few, which is something I'm ok with.
