Kim, that link is fantastic! I sent it to all my gardener friends, particularly the office bunch coz I just found out that we got a community plot this year. Now I have a place for all my leftover seedlings! What a Face

Thanks so much for the link!

Homemade Garlic-Mint Garden Insect Spray
 
Prep time
10 m

Cook time
24 hours

Total time
24 hours 10 m

 
A DIY garden bug spray that is easy to make and use, and really works!
Author: Jami Boys - An Oregon Cottage
Recipe type: Organic Garden Bug Spray
Yield: 12 cups

Ingredients


  • 2 whole heads garlic, cloves separated and peeled
  • 3 c. mint leaves (and stems, too - I just throw it all in now)
  • 2 tsp. dry cayenne pepper
  • 12 c. water
  • 2 small squirts of biodegradable dishwashing liquid



Directions


[list="box-sizing: border-box; margin-right: 0px; margin-left: 0px; padding-right: 0px; padding-left: 0px; line-height: inherit;"]
[*]Add the garlic and mint to a food processor and pulse for a few seconds.
[*]Transfer mixture to a large pot and add the cayenne and 12c. water.
[*]Bring to a boil; remove from heat and let sit overnight.
[*]Strain into a couple spray bottles (or gallon garden sprayer) and add the two small squirts of dish soap.
[*]To Use:
[*]- shake well before each use
[*]- this mainly repels bugs, though if they rub against it, it can kill them.
[*]- spray all the leaves on affected plants, including the undersides - preferably on a cloudy day so as not to burn the plants.
[*]- wait a few days to see the effect and then apply more if needed (many times I’ve only needed to do one application)
[/list]


Notes
- This is like a pepper spray, so you can protect your skin and eyes like you would when using any hot peppers, although the potency is less because it only uses dried cayenne.
- Wait a few days to harvest after using so there aren't any spicy residuals (I only used 2 applications the whole summer, so there never was any taste to the produce).
- The scent keeps bugs away, but I still had ladybugs and bees, maybe because I only used the spray a few times.
