I have seen posts that suggest using vinegar to get rid of aphids. Isn't vinegar harmful to growing things?

Vinegar is a great HERBICIDE (weed killer). For aphids, I suggest a squirt of liquid dish soap in a pint or so of water, spray the leaves, contacting as many aphids as possible. After 20 minutes or so, you may want to rinse off the soapy water so you don't burn the leaves.
