Having a little problem here. Notice anything in particular? Yeah, HOLES, everywhere! My poor poor green beans, well, what’s left of them after the chickens had a field day scratching in this particular bed, have been pretty much obliterated by some unidentified munching creature. (The little tiny flying bugs all over the backs of the leaves, perhaps?) I’ve tried spraying the plants with organic insecticides, but the problem with that has been that it can’t rain for 24 hours after applying the spray… and it has been raining every other day for several weeks now! So, the sprays have done no good. My mother-in-law suggested that I add some lemon scented dish soap to some water and spray both sides of the plant’s leaves with that… but like I said, it hasn’t stayed dry long enough for it to help. I’m about to dig all of these up and re-plant the bed.
