These Are A Problem! | Do You Have Them In Your Yard? | Happenings On The Homestead
Well, the garden is growing, and of course, that brings the pests. I have one I am dealing with in the potato and tomato area. They are called Tortoise Beetles, and they like to eat leaves. Something much worse is on our homestead, and that is caterpillars. They are eating the leaves right off the trees, down to nothing. Luckily the chickens will eat them, but not fast enough, and they can't reach way up in the trees. Do you have these in your yard? Scary.
We moved to this new off grid property to get into Modern Homesteading in January of 2016. We are living in rural Maine on 12 acres & have a small farm of chickens, raised bed & in ground garden. Sharing how we live off grid and use our Kubota L2501.
