Not just for the vegetable garden.

These are some plants for around the patio to discourage mosquitoes.

Nice site, TL. Thank you. Our garden season is beginning to wind down just as yours is beginning to crank up, but we who garden all love the bees and flowers no matter what the time of year. The comments at the bottom of the site were interesting, too.

I seem to remember a song my mother used to sing about "A Lonely Little Petunia in an Onion Patch"

I remember my dad scattering Marigolds throughout the garden to keep something away.

I've tried many companion plantings. I'm sure it works for some but for me the bugs always win.

Just one of the joys of gardening in a decent climate.
