Another of my "natural remedies" for all things garden. This one is easy easy easy. Again, I found it on the internet and saved it for the summer garden.

Ingredients

quinoa, uncooked
water for rinsing

Step-By-Step

1When you are rinsing the quinoa, save the rinse water. Pour it into a spray bottle and you have an organic liquid that repells insects. Use it on your vegetable plants.

2I wouldn't recommend using it on culinary herbs though as it could affect the taste. The coating of the quinoa, saponin, a resin-like substance is extremely bitter and forms a soapy solution in water.
