clem and the beanstalk

Postby Clem » Thu Apr 26, 2007 8:21 am

A fella traded me a cub today for 5 majic beans. He said that if I plant them they would grow about 6 feet tall and would flower and keep mosquitos away. He called them mosquito plants. Has anyone ever heard of this before? They are from Georgia.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!

I have seen the mosquito plants advertised in some of the organic gardening magazines I used to get, but I don't know how well they work.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Better kill that entry before Momma Dog sees it. She will have to have a great sense of humor for you to survive the beating.
In my case it would be ok. Bev has a great sense of humor, otherwise she would not have married me.

Uh oh!!!!!! :!: :!: :shock:

Just wait until the "organic folks" get to this one... It is a GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISM (GMO)... The organic, all natural, crowd is gonna be really upset with this one...

First time I've ever heard of them. Pretty interesting, might be worth giving them a try.
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

Had one at a house I rented a few years back. Didn't look too bad, but it didn't work too good, either. It was planted next to a walkway and used to grow into the way frequently such that I would have to trim it back. I recall being overwhelmed with mosquitos while trimming it, so I'm not sure this is the promise science claims it to be.

Than again, that place had so many darned mosquitos, it would have taken a whole yard of the stuff to make a difference.

Mike,

Although their genes aren't spliced, our modern corn and many other crops are far different from their origins through selective breeding. The all natural crowd just needs to get used to it. :lol:
