We just planted a McIntosh apple tree on Arbor day. We got back from vacation to find brown spots all over the leaves. I looked it up and it looks like Frogeye spot. I can't find ANY info on treating this organically without fungicide sprays. Should I leave it be and see what happens? Pick and burn the diseased leaves? Anyone know how to treat this organically?

Also, bean leaf beetles appear to have eaten a good portion of my bean and pea plants. I haven't seen any bugs, but they are eaten pretty badly. I also can't find organic control ideas for this other than to pick them and drown the beetles, but I haven't seen any! Would a soap spray work? DE?
