Most of us set out to do just that. But what happens when you see pests munching on your crops? Do you ignore them? Look up a homemade "organic" pesticide? Purchase one from the store? Or are you tempted to throw in the towel and find the strongest pesticide on the home market?


We all want a healthy garden but are faced with those questions when insects come to our gardens. It always helps to talk to successful organic gardeners and ask what works. But I wanted to go a step further.


In this episode of the Beginner's Garden Podcast, I asked Joe Lamp'l about not only his personal practices but also which organic pesticides he recommends and how to use them.
