Watermelon Plants

Floating Bug Screens

If using netting to protect plants, cover them after the flowering season, so the pollinators can get in. There are many other organic methods that will help in the fight against plant-eaters: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/natural-pest-control-in-an-organic-garden.htm
