Spring Planters

Today was a great fingers-in-the-dirt kind of day. Spring is fully here in East Texas and the bugs are already out! We planted eight new planters for our back porch with plants to help keep bugs away: lavender, peppermint, citronella, and marigolds. Let’s hope these help!

    Have they been keeping the bugs away?

    • Well…I ‘think’ they’re keeping away mosquitos and bees…but we started seeing a few wasps again this weekend (just when I thought maybe it was working on them too!) when it warmed back up. I’m not giving up though! They are thriving (I’ll have to post a picture of how much they’ve grown in the few short weeks we’ve had them) and smell great. So…we’ll layer on another anti-wasp “thing” and see how it goes. Any tips on how to keep wasps away? :-)
