We ended up purchasing a few more plants, so we now have three tomato plants (one that will produce cherry tomatoes and two that will produce larger tomatoes), two pepper plants (banana peppers and red bell peppers), and one citronella plant.
Are any of you familiar with citronella plants? The fellow at The Home Depot told me that they will repel mosquitoes up to 10 feet. As I child, I also remember my mom rubbing the leaves on our arms and legs to keep bees at bay while we played AYSO soccer. I am considering buying some herbs, although I may have to wait until next year, as it is late in the season.
