Can anyone help direct me to a means of growing good strawberries organically? We have a terrible problem with the tarnished plant bug that stunts the fruit.

Also, has anyone used the "plastic moats" around their potato patch to discourage the Colorado potato beetle from crossing over to the potato plants? How did it work and how did you do it?

Perhaps a reply in the EFAO Newsletter might help other farmers as well.

(Editor: Please let me know if you can answer one or both of these questions. Helping each other - that's what it's all about.)
