    Looks like japaneese beetles to me. @ least the holes. Those things are dead by harvest time i
    think. As long as they dont eat the whole plant u should b ok. Gotta kill those things in the

    How difficult would it be to go through the side of the fridge? I'd kinda like easy acess to

    Ok, I've never even brewed my own batch, but helped some with the ag. Read ALOT! What would
