Organic gardening: natural pesticides
We had great success preventing our tomatoes from getting eaten this past summer by using a natural, organic pesticide. There are lots of organic pesticides that you can make on the cheap.
We used a cheap spray bottle with water and then mixed in some organic Brommer's peppermint soap: it smelled great.
Apparently, there are lots of other organic pesticide sprays, including:
- Tobacco or Nicotine
- Buttermilk & flour
- Dead bug
- Spearmint-Hot Pepper-Horseradish
