Hands On::Night Monitoring for Cutworms

Organic farming is a hands on job.  We don't use any chemical sprays, so we monitor for pests and other problems.  Right now we are watching for caterpillars and cutworms in the garden.  Last night we went out and looked for cutworms in the dark--it's best to check for them at dusk and during the night, when they are active.

Hooray for new batteries in my headlamp!!

As you can see we are very excited about night farming!  It was a beautiful night and cool to hear the bugs and birds.

Hehe, I had to add that just for fun.

We found a good number of cutworms, it was worth going out there.
