I makes them happy, because they enjoyed my organic vegetables free and chemical – free too.
All my needs for my daily diet are found in my garden. If I want tomatoes, I just go to my garden, pick some fresh mature fruits ready for my salad. I have lots of vegetables you could mention, from eggplant, beans, charantia, okra, sweet potato, cassava, yautia, papaya, pepper, cucumbers of different species, and I also planted some herbal plants as companion crops to ward off some destructive insects.
As companion herbal plants, I have planted herba buena, lemon grass, spring onion, and you know I also included ubi plant on all sides of the garden.
All these plants go hand in hand together protecting each other, since I don’t use any pesticides to control insect pests. They all grow naturally with the aid of natures abundant protective measures.
Sometimes there are red ants and aphids that attacks my eggplants and beans. I used my homemade insecticides which is a formulation of 2 tablespoon of vegetable oil, 2 tablespoon of baking soda, and 2 tablespoon of powdered laundry soap. I just spray the combination directly into the red ants and aphids, and there, they’re all dead.
I always monitor my plants everyday, morning and afternoon, if I see some larva attacking my tomatoes, I just hand pick them grind them to death. Most often larva, aphids and red ants are the most shared pests that I noticed in my garden.
This is probably credited to the presence of some herbal plants I planted as companion crops in my garden. The strong aroma of lemon grass, herba buena and spring onion are manifestation to ward off some other destructive insect pests.
These herbal plants are known for their repelling ability to some major insect pests because of their strong aroma.
