Thanks for the heads up, Kathryn!

I was reading last week where Coleus plants have mosquito inhibiting properties. Needless to say, a plant that I had previously ignored is suddenly of interest. I have two Coleus plants that I am trying out as companions in the blueberry patch, I've planted some seeds, and I have an alcohol extract of the leaves that I am experimenting with on myself. Next step is a mosquito repelling salve.
