I’ve always been a big fan of flowers and gardens but I’ve not always been so good about taking care of my own garden. Over the last year or so I’ve also been moving toward a more green, healthy lifestyle. We’ve been buying more organic food and products. One thing that I’ve struggled with is bug spray. I’m a mosquito magnet. If there is a mosquito anywhere nearby it will come bite me. I’m not thrilled with putting all those chemicals only skin so I researched some alternatives. I’ll be mixing up some bug spray later on but today I planted two garden boxes for my deck with plants that are supposed to repel bugs. My boxes contain: citronella, marigolds, lavender and lemon grass. Aside from looking pretty I hope they work.
