Its probably pretty obvious to all that our garden is organic. And it should be pretty obvious that organic growing can usually bring some bugs. We use a few homemade treatments on our plants to help ease the bug problem--- and it works, 90+% of the time. On occasion (typically do to forgetfulness or indifference) we end up with some buggies on our greens. It's not the most appetizing thing--- but luckily, it's pretty easy to handle and get rid of with little to no effort.
How to do it:
Simply fill up a large bowl, bucket, or your sink with water and dump in vinegar. Submerge your greens and let them sit for about 20 minutes.
How much vinegar:
this depends on the amount of greens but typically 1/10 vinegar to water will do it.
What kind of vinegar?
Any will do. I'd recommend white or apple cider though. Balsamics or similar ones might be a bit strange ;)
Tada! All the bugs should have sunk to the bottom and you should be good to cook and eat as you wish :) Happy green eating :)
