Hello! I have planted green beans, radishes and broccoli in this raised garden bed. I have never had a pest problem in the past but something is definitely eating only these three plants. I spray around the plants with a garlic water solution today. Does anyone know what is eating my plants and if there are any natural remedies?

Have you checked the bottom of the leaves for small green looper caterpillars? In any case I would spray with either Bt or spinosad which are both organic products.

That is the first thing that came to my mind too was cabbage worms or loopers. The cross striped cabbage worm started in on my broccoli all of a sudden and decimated one plant. Upon inspection there were literally hundreds of them that must have just hatched. These were little bitty worms so look very closely especially since they may be green and hard to see.
