Hays Free Press April 13, 2016 COMMUNITY Page 3C It's About Thyme Continued from pg. 1C this is the path of our prevailing winds and the flight path of 'the invaders.' Bingo. It worked! Neither garden has had any pests in the past year. All of the plants are still flourishing after our non-winter. Tobacco is a member of the nightshade family. The species we grow is Nicotiana tabacum - Virginia gold. It reaches a height of 6 feet, and has velvety light green leaves and beautiful pink trumpet flowers. It's quite lovely and adds a level of interest to the gardens. Aside from the myriad of images that magically become fixed in your head as you weed and work around them like the Marlboro Man, a Camel and some guy with a black eye, the smell is rather pleasant. Many online gardening sites suggest using the tobacco plant as an insect repellent, but this is incorrect. These plants are insect attractors. In fact this is the reason tobacco Aside from the myriad of images that magically become fixed in your head as you weed and work around them like the Marlboro Man, a Camel and some guy with a black eye, the smell is rather pleasant. crops take a tremendous toll on the environment - because of the amount of chemicals required to keep the plants insect-free to grow production-grade leaves. Some tout the use of tobacco tea as an organic insect repellent. I've not tried it yet only because I've not had to. The tobacco we plant is purely sacrificial. We plant it to draw all the bad bugs to it and that's that. I actually thought ours would have died over the winter but they actually thrived and are bigger and healthier than last year. I have 500 plant babies started and they will be ready for sale next week at $6.99 each. Plant them in full sun for best results. Tell us how they worked for you for your bug problems. Save your seed pods for next year, you will get a million seeds... seriously! Please don't use the leaves for anything else; your garden needs you. Happy gardening everyone!
