Follow my adventures in Mommyhood, as I seek out info and offer help to those who want to be Greener Mommies. I will discuss breastfeeding, midwives, attachment parenting, renewable and sustainable living, composting, cloth diapering, organic gardening, organic baby products, making your own baby food, and other green things. I am not an expert just a Mom exploring things as I go.
Are deer and rabbits a big problem in your garden? The solution is a simple one. Plant marigolds around your garden. The pungent odor helps detract certain insects such as aphids but also deer, rabbits and some other pest type mammals. They just don't like the smell, color or taste of these stinky flowers. Marigolds are also useful in other ways too. They can be used in topical remedies for things such as chicken pox. I wrote about this before last summer. So plant some marigolds. Not only are they pretty but they are very very helpful!
