Thursday-Not too much to do today since all my artist gardeners came yesterday. They mixed in compost, planted sunflower seeds and white radish seeds. My problem now is white fly. My neighbor has an infestation on one of the trees and the white flies have found my tomatoes. I sprayed a cottonseed oil on the plants twice already in the last 5 weeks. Then I ordered lacewing eggs. The eggs are supposed to hatch and become larvae that eat the white fly. Well, I don't think they are doing their job. I also bought yellow sticky paper. So far I have caught 2 white flies. I am afraid to use too much sticky paper because I might catch the lace wings too. What do you think?
