Yes, gardening is like working for a living. When you work for a paycheck the government is right there expecting its cut. Well, it is the same thing when you work in a garden - nature wants its cut of the proceeds too.

I might back off on the pesticide. I figure if it kills insects, some of the toughest creatures on the planet then what is it doing to you? Sure, your bigger than those bugs and so you and your family can take more of the stuff (and you will be eating pesticide residue if you use it on your crops). But is this wise? Up to you.

Often if you do some research there are more natural remedies that will allow you a good harvest even if the insects and other creatures take a small cut for themselves. I find this works better for us all around.
