Bless you and yours as well as the cottage you live in. May the roof overhead be well thatched and those inside be well matched.

Natural Tansy Insect Repellant
We have wild tansy growing on our property. It is listed as a
noxious weed in Idaho, but we don't have much of it so I leave some of it
to grow instead of mowing over it. You can use it as a companion plant
with cabbage and other garden plants as an insect repellant. I'm going to make a spray to keep
cabbage worms at bay. Once used for medicinal purposes such as
de-worming, it has toxic properties and should be used with caution for
human consumption. However, as a natural insect repellant, I'm going to
give it a try.
