Do you have problems with cutworms? I thought I was doing O.K. this year, no sign of the little pests for the first week after I put the tomatoes and peppers out. Then BANG!! in two days I lost four tomatoes and a pepper. Dug the little beggars out and squashed them, but small compensation for loosing the plants. Then I dug around the survivors, 34 tomatoes, 15 hot peppers and 24 cabbages and broccoli, and put plastic tubs around them to keep the worms out. Hind sight is twenty twenty, should have done that in the first place, right? The dumb part is I know better, just was in a hurry to get things done.
