I have enjoyed the comments even more than the original article! Lots of great information. it's worth a few holes in my spinach leaves to avoid using toxic chemicals. I have also planted nasturtiums as an attractant... to be the primary feast for the buggies instead of my vegetables.

Isollybear - sorry - those weren't bugs - your spinach looked so delicious I couldn't help myself.
