Thank you for allowing us to be your farmers. We hope that each week you are thrilled with your share of goodness that my team and I have coaxed out of soil. Please let me know if you're not. Here's a picture of the guys using a 35x350 sheet of insect netting to protect a newly seeded crop of cucumbers. Yes- it would much cheaper and effective to use an insecticide to kill all the insects, but we're a USDA Certified Organic Farm and you deserve better.
