Hi Kirk1701. First, those garden pictures look great. Congratulations!
Small point above that seems to have been glossed over in post #47:
You quote Greensoctor telling you to use 1 1/2-2 teaspoons of Malathion, the you came back with 2 TABLESPOONS would be...1 oz per gallon.
1 TBS = 3 tsp. Maybe this is part of the misunderstanding. I did not click on the label or the spray program document.
