My garden is so lush right now and I have been enjoying it so much.Unfortunately my least favorite part of gardening is happening now. The bugs have come to suck the life out of all my beautiful plants. I can deal with heat and diseases but I do not like dealing with the dumb bugs

I have a harlequin bug infestation in my collards. I squished tons of them and pulled out the collards only to find a bunch more on my 2nd set of collards the next night. I hate the little pop! of squishing their little bodies. I tried to get the kids into but they didn't like it either. I also found 2 squash bugs ( otherwise known as the spawn of Satan) on my butternut squash. I kinda enjoyed the pop that time. AAArgh. The battle has begun.
