Just because you’re growing organically doesn’t mean you’re defenceless against pests, but you will probably have less than pristine looking plants and produce. Since you are trying to garden in cooperation with nature, sometimes you have to tolerate the occasional pest in the garden. Vigilance is key when it comes to pest control. Inspect your plants regularly for signs of a problem and take action quickly. Keep in mind that not every insect is a foe and that pesticide isn’t always the answer.
