That's what is weird this year... we have NO bugs - worms - critters on the harvest. The only thing we did different this year was we *tried* to plant peas. They never survived past about 2" tall. We had anticipated having a boatload of vines, though, so we ran cattle panels attached to T-posts down the center of the garden for the peas to vine on. Well, now the house sparrows sit on the cattle panels. ALL. DAY. LONG. Probably 20 of them - they are perched just inches above the squash, cucumber, and broccoli plants. The only thing I can figure is that we have given the sparrow a perfect perch to rain death down on any beetle or bug that might land on the plants.
