    Default Natural Recipe for Protecting Greens in the Veggie Garden from Destructive Bugs

    Here is a natural tip for looking after your kale and other greens in the veggie garden and protecting them from destructive insects. Mix 2 tablespoons of red-pepper powder and 6 drops of liquid soap in 1 gallon of water. Let the mixture sit overnight and stir thoroughly. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle, shake well and spray weekly on the tops and bottoms of the leaves.
