Within a kitchen garden where no chemical treatments are used, bugs are everywhere. The more numerous they are, the more there are chances to find an "assistant gardener" insect preying on the enemies of vegetables. But animal laws are far from being as tender as those of the gardeners! In the wild jungle that is a kitchen garden, hundreds of natural wars are happening every day, on as many battlefields called "cabbages", "carrots"... or "artichokes"! By fighting the legions of greenery eaters, hundreds of animals unknowingly become... the gardeners' best friends!
