Black sooty mold caused by aphids may start to appear on your citrus, so blasting plants with a jet spray of water from your hose will really help a lot.  Do it every couple of days to keep the problem under control. If you need to go to the next level of pest control, spray with a soapy water mixture. 

Protect vine vegetables from snails and slugs by lifting the fruits up onto cans, berry baskets, or boards. Also, spread crushed eggshells under each plant as snail and slug protection. They don’t like the sharp particles.
