Daily Farm Pics – June 12th, 2009

We’ve noticed our eggplants’ leaves are a little lace-y. There are flea beetles eating holes in the leaves. After some research and seeing other gardens, we’ve decided to let these guys live. They are interested in the leaves and not the fruits. We will be planting radishes in between the eggplants. The radishes are a better attractor of flea beetles so this should slow down the eating of the eggplants. We’ll continue to monitor the plants to make sure there is no major damage being done.
