Hi everyone, need some help!  Last year every time I went to pick a ripe strawberry I found that ants and other bugs had eaten big holes in them.  Does anyone know how to stop this??  I 'd love to eat my strawberries this year.  I remember when I lived somewhere else that I always had great luck.

Yes, they will get enough sunlight. I'll try that. I use knee-highs for, squash, cantaloupe, for large watermelon I use panty part of a pantyhose, for smaller one like the "sugar baby" I can use the legs. I grow vertically and they are great for supporting heavy fruits or veggies and it helps to tie them to the fence.

I just placed knee-highs on my cabbage plants - hoping to deter those nasty cabbage moths.  I was wondering though, will the sun be able to penetrate the panty hose.  I chose a "nude" color, but it still looks weird.

What is an easy tip for keeping slugs off of my hosta plants?

It doesn't seem to bother very much of the other plants.

Sorry, no, does it eat anything besides your tomatoes?
