ORGANIC GARDENINGI don't typically buy organic produce. I mean, it seems a little ungrateful, my dad being a pesticide salesman and all. But, I did want my square foot garden to be pesticide free. So, I had to think outside the box when I discovered my broccoli plants had been taken over by an army of small green worms
My pest control of choice? Two eager boys, five and two, armed with mason jars and the anticipation of a penny per worm. An hour later, my broccoli is worm free (for today), and my boys are forty-three cents richer.
De-worming the garden has been added to their daily chore chart. With a payout like that, they can't wait for tomorrow!
