Garden news

The garden is coming along. This is our first garden - we have several types of corn, beans, tomatoes, squash, and cucumbers. The peppers (hot peppers and bell peppers) didn't grow. The tomatoes already are flowering and have several small green tomatoes. The beans appear to be ready to flower. The squash are getting vines.
...I know, I really need to weed the garden!!

The green beans seem to have a bug problem - it appears something is eating the leaves, but I've only seen a couple small black ants on the leaves. We really didn't want to use any pesticides on the garden... Any recommendations?
