A flurry of little moths was fluttering around my closet as I tried to pack up and stall before finally leaving for the lake. Were cedar chips enough? I did a quick, actually an extensive, search on the Internet to find out for sure. In addition to cedar, lavender was also recommended. One recipe described how to make your own mothballs, by simply putting a few drops of lavender oil on cotton balls.
My lavender was ready for cutting, so I scooped out the harvest from the garden. Then, I bought a bunch of those little cedar chip muslin bags from the grocery store, and tied the stems around the bag. Then, I packed a few to take to the lake.
Wow, what an easy and great idea! I had no idea! Now I know how to put all the lavender in the back yard to good use!
