This one is for Shana, my daughter Grace, and everyone else who might be severely allergic to Mosquitos; we’re ready to repel those buggers in the Summer of 2019!
Before sitting out to a long summer evening bbq in the garden, S and G have been known to band both wrists and ankles with repelling bracelets and anklets, and even to make a necklace out of three of these. And then one of us, who is lesser reactive to the buggers preps the garden with everything in the house that will burn and repel mosquitos, and we call this Functional Summer Ambiance. All to the constant call of “Close. The. Screen. Door!!!”
This year in prep for the season, I did a little extra research (which may possibly have been motivated by Shana’s entire garden needing to be replanted — that’s another story) and found many plants that grow well in city container gardens, AND naturally repel Mosquitos. So we’ll soon be planting those too!
