Organic Pest Control
I used your recipe #2 on my vegetable garden the day before yesterday. The next day they looked horrible. All the leafy green veggies have white spots all over them and seem to be dying! I measured the baking soda, oil dish soap and water. Can you help me? My garden was doing well until I spayed the organic garden pest control recipe #2.

I am very sorry about that. I am not sure why that occurred, but I am wondering if it was perhaps a dish soap that contained bleach. Some have started adding that, so I am going to note on the article that this should be watched for. I am very sorry that you discovered this the hard way and I apologize. I would water the garden from above liberally. This will help wash off the dish soap and dilute what is there.
The very best organic pest control I have found is neem oil. Very effective and safe for beneficial bugs like bees and lady bugs. Here is more info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
