natural pest repellent for the garden

I'd been looking for the recipe for a natural pest repellant and just found it at Martha's. Garden Guy's beautiful Roma tomatoe plants have got the disease - curled leaf tomatoes. We're bummed. All three plants were pulled today and dumped in the garbage. This natural pest repellant can work on the other plants that have some little pests taking nibbles.

Recipe: Place one peeled onion, two peeled garlic cloves, and one teaspoon cayenne pepper in the jar of a blender. Add three cups of water, and blend until smooth. Let the mixture sit overnight, strain the liquid into a spray bottle, and coat plants generously. The solution will keep, refrigerated in the bottle, for up to one week. Thanks Martha for the recipe!
