My first batch of baby tomato plants were completely destroyed. So were all my baby pepper plants, but my cabbage, brussels sprouts, and broccoli were left alone. That was a sad day for me! Now that I have my final garden all tilled up, and let my chickens roam about for a day or two picking what they wanted out of the freshly worked up ground, I now have the garden fenced in to keep it protected from rabbits and deer, but I’m still getting these nasty little buggers hurting my new tomato plants! I’ve read that I need to add in used coffee grounds, which is good as a fertilizer for most of my plants, anyway, and to add in diatemaceous earth. I’ll also add in some dissolved epsom salts. I saw some cool ideas to protect the plants from the cutworms. See below:
Any thoughts from those of you who have had to deal with these deadly killer bugs?
