Organic garden spray recipe-soak a crushed clove of garlic pepper in veg oil overnight. Strain into a bottle. Add 2-3 drops dish soap & a TBSP of baking soda. Fill the bottle w/HOT water to activate soap. Spray at dusk if you have anything in the squash family or the leaves may burn from soap. The garlic keeps bugs away. The pepper keeps the rodents away. The baking soda fights diseases the plants might have. The soap kills soft-bodied bugs by going into their system & dehydrating them.
"Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier"
