MENTHA spicata (Spearmint)
- Spearmint repels mosquitoes, flies and spiders. As for Joeleen's chickens that ingest it, mint has a calming effect on laying hens. Also, mint naturally lowers body temperatures which can be helpful in keeping a flock cool in the summer.
- Tomato suckers are the growths that appear in the junction between the stem and a branch of a tomato plant (axil). Pruning tomato suckers increases air flow around the plant, reduces plant disease, and speeds fruit ripening.
