    Wow, I love Lynn’s garden and her info. I always learn something in each episode and I’m on my 46th veggie garden! I had been searching for answers to squash bugs but I see the way I’ve been doing it is the way she does it — tear off the section of leaf with the eggs and get any adults I can find. What I did learn was that Captain Jack’s will get the nymphs, the little spidery babies, so my order of that just arrived and I feel armed! Will it get cucumber beetles? Another topic — planting basil with tomatoes. I read that the basil can improve the flavor of the tomatoes — have you found that? Many thanks for these videos, Lynn!
