Today's Quote

“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” Thomas Jefferson

Garden Tip of the Day

Plants flowers and herbs among your vegetables for improved growth, flavor and pest control. Nasturtiums planted with squash will help to keep squash bugs away. Basil planted with tomatoes improves the flavor. Lavender and Tarragon help to repel carrot flies and cabbage moths. Marigolds help to trap pests and repel them. Sunflowers act as a trap to squash bugs. And the list goes one. The one thing I like most is that it adds some beauty to the garden and helps to attract bees. Blessings, Kat
