We have had many people ask us what we are doing with the white sheets placed all over the gardens. These "white sheets" are row covers. Row covers are an organic growers best friend!! While many people know the benefits of row covers for frost protection in the early spring and late fall we use them as protection against harmful insects. At any given time during the growing season you will see rowcovers sporadically spaced all over the beds.
Row covers come in all different weights......(i.e. thickness of material). We use the the thinnest material available (0.55 ounce) because this allows the most amount of heat exchange during the hot months of the summer. These row covers work great for prevention of cucumber beetles, squash bugs and flea beetles.
Try them out to eliminate pesticides from your garden.
