Finally Found a Cure for the Flea Beetle!

OK, so maybe it's not a cure so much as it's a distraction, but at least I've found a way to keep flea beetles from tearing through my eggplant - plant kale near the eggplant.  Flea beetles love kale, and kale grows fast, so it's not damaged by the little holes those nasty flea beetles leave when they chomp into the leaves.  I honestly don't even notice the holes, but I've been organic gardening for so many years that holes are the norm.
