As a newbie to veggie gardening, what natural methods work best for controlling aphids, worms, etc. on the veggie plants?

I have read articles about mixing water, cayenne pepper and a little liquid soap into a sprayer. Has anyone tried this with any success?

I may give it a shot today as we have some aphids on the underside of some of the chard. They wash right off, but I don't like having to really wash and examine every leaf THAT closely before I eat it! I am sure I may have eaten a few . . :)
