Going Green Growing natural

Here are some of the veggies we got growing.
I am open to sugestions for Pest control as well. The challenge is .. No use of chemicals or pesticides.

So looking for a way to control slugs, and harmfull insects such as caterpillars (destructive kind) and grubs.

Also looking to grow veggies high in fiber as well.

If you have sugestion on veggies let me know.
Oh we will also be planning on getting asparagus, I hear it is super easy to grow.

Also we will be trying some lattice methods for the pumpkins in hopes to alow the leaves to Breathe and to allow for a nice Halloween Back drop for later .
