I have very tiny black bugs on my tomatoes & some lettuce. What would you suggest I use to get rid of them? Would prefer non-chemical if possible.

Since we don't know for sure what these bugs are, the best course of action is to wash them off with a strong stream of water from the hose. If these pests are destructive in nature, a population of good bugs may very well appear later in the season to help reduce the number of bad bugs in the garden. If you refrain from using pesticides, you'll increase the likelihood of good insects taking up residence in your tomato patch.
