suggestions for gardening without Deet-ing my kids
Here in MD the mosquitoes are fierce! I have a 23mth. old and a 9Mth. old, and up until the bugs were in force, I could garden like crazy with them puttering around with me. Garden hose for older one, younger one in a carrier on my back. They loved it.
NOW that the bugs are out, I can't take them out hardly AT ALL, and my garden is really suffering. Sometimes I park them behind the screen door and garden the beds nearest the door until the wailing and nashing of gums becomes too much, but THE GUILT!! Anyone else have the same problem, anyone have any solutions?
