Everything looks beautiful!

I found a tip online about earwigs, and I'm trying it because they are going after my cabbages.

Bay leaves!

Apparently if you crush the bay leaves and place around problem areas it will repel earwigs.

And they are also drowning happy in my homemade mix of yeast, sugar and water. I have five traps all around and it's working for both slugs and earwigs. I don't even find a need to use beer.

Edit forgot to add that maybe the Monarda is a hybrid and reverted back to pink. I have some reliable reds that come red for the past 4 summers, will save seeds for you.
