And as you may remember from the beetle incident (same link as the one right above, but here's an opportunity to click again if you didn't the first time), I also planted a ton of radishes because I read that they were a natural cucumber beetle repellent.
The good news? No more beetle sightings! (and no more little holes from beetle chewing either)
The bad? An overwhelming radish crop that threatens to take over the chard if not trimmed back regularly.
