The good news is that things are actually growing (we're apt dwellers, but decided to take the plunge and got a plot in the organic community garden in our city) We have letuce, zucchini, pumpkin, sunflowers, tomatos, strawberries and parsley growing.

The bad news is that we have what I am told are cucumber beetles. They are small bugs that look similar to a ladybug, but are green rather than red. We have been told that coffee grounds help to keep them away s o we have been using them around the plants, but is there any other organic way to deal with these pests?
