    Hi guys! This is Celine from the Farmer’s Market. I bought lots of seeds and everything is growing beautifully! Thank you so much!! I am having trouble with a pest in one of my beds and thought I should ask you first. I planted my arugula seeds directly about 1 week ago. They began to shoot up nicely and then someone (tiny creature) began eating the leaves! Whatever it was did not touch the cauliflower shoots and the spinach had not sprouted yet. Next morning: the little gal has eaten the remaining arugula leaves AND cauliflower. There were a few holes dug where it possibly dug out seeds…and the odd thing is–there are 3 other beds with full-grown leaves of strawberry, broccoli, etc. Due to this fact, I’m thinking my pest might live IN the first bed. Any ideas?

      Hi Celine,
      First, thank you for your support!

      It sounds like you might have flea beetles. They like cruciferous plants (arugula, broccoli, cauliflower, etc.) They do live in the soil, so getting rid of them will be a little more challenging than if they had just arrived. I would try working in some DE (diatomaceous earth) and use some sort of sticky traps. If you can find Tanglefoot, paint that on a 2 liter bottle and set that amongst the plants. It should attract the beetles and they get stuck. Sorry guys, I know that’s a tough way to go, but I’d prefer those methods to pesticides.

      If you have another place to plant, I might even leave that bed alone, let the beetles have it and try another bed. You can deter the beetles by using a row cover over the new crops.

      I hope this is helpful and good luck! If you’re in zone 8b, it’s not too late to start all those cruciferous crops again.

    Hi Judy, I wish I had some for sale. I’m just growing some for our family right now. Dragonfly Fields has some really yummy greens right now. Thanks for asking, though. See you at the market.
