Protecting Your Harvest from Critters

Nutritious annual green with Culinary and Medicinal Benefits

Critters

Know what your critters like and grow those in protected areas. For example our main critters are squirrels. They do not bother greens such as lettuce, kale, herbs, asparagus. Raised beds will protect crops from rabbits. Encourage predators such as cats and rejoice when you see hawks.

Pest Control

Ladybugs: Ladybugs can eat mites, thrips, white flies, scales and mealybugs. In the lifetime of a ladybug each insect can eat up to 5,000 aphids. See picture below of a ladybug devouring white flies on a potato plant.

 

One can dry chickweed in a food dehydrator on 95 F or simply air dry it in a screen in a dry location with good airflow that is warm. Store after drying in an airtight container in cool, dark location. [4]

History

Chickweed is native to Europe, including Great Britain and has been naturalized in North America. It came up in European folklore and magic to promote fidelity and attract love. Sailors used its vinegar to prevent scurvy. [1]
