What do you grow under pest netting?

Post  jewlz2121 on 7/24/2013, 3:50 pm

I'm looking to create a tulle/pvc hoop house to protect my fall crops.  I've had a terrible time with moths and butterflies this summer.  My son gets so excited when butterflies are flitting around, but I not so much!  I am thinking the following should be covered..... Broccoli, Radish, Spinach, Kale?  Can anyone correct me or add to the list of things that should be grown mostly covered to prevent egg laying?

If anyone would like to post a picture of a hoop house that has worked well for them, please do!  Thank you!

I grow my cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower under my chuck wagon. It's built with two 10' pieces of 1/2 PVC and another 4' piece as the center support. I connected the center support to the ends by drilling a hole big enough to fit a zip tie through each. I purchased the Tulle cloth from Ann's Fabric. I hold the Tulle cloth together with simple clothes pins.

jewlz....The fall crops most susceptible with pests will be the brassicas, but not as much as in spring since its getting cooler.  That includes Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, chinese cabbage.   Its the white cabbage moth that does the worst damage.
Fall growing radishes, lettuce, turnip, spinach and most greens should be pretty safe.

mrwes....I love your 'chuck wagon' doing its duty.  Great job.
