I had an insect eat an entire field green plant. I knew it was a insect because a rabbit would have eaten the entire garden. There is also an inscet that likes my basil. The other herbs show no signs of being consumed.
At the Farmer's Market in Kingston, I told an organic farmer about my insect problem. She suggested I dust with garlic or spray garlic water onto the plants. So far the dusting seems to be working. There is NO way I would use any type of chemicals in my garden.
