Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

This is a great article. I know as a fact that there is no need to spread pesticide in home gardens, not even herbicides. Pesticides are used for large scale farms! Please all you need is water and good soil for your home garden to grow. Please contact your city green or sustainable groups if you are considering using pesticides or herbicides in your garden. NEVER USE PESTICIDES or HERBICIDES IN YOUR HOME GARDEN.
Thanks!
Luigi
