Help with cukes
I live in Neptune Beach (32266) and have raised garden beds every year. I grow cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, onions, and peppers. Every year I have a problem with worms in cucumbers. This year I tried a religious application of Sevin spray every 7 days as stated in the instructions. I paid careful attention to not spray the flowers because I thought it might affect the pollination. For the first couple of weeks, the cukes were outstanding. Now I am getting all kinds of worms in the cukes.... Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks, Mike
