Hoff Hit: Parsley Garden

If you're planting a garden, be sure to plant some parsley as well.  This little trick will save you the angst of watching your veggies get eaten by uninvited guests!

This concept is known as companion planting.

By planting parsley, you will attract predator insects who will eat the insects gorging themselves on your bounty!

Tomatoes in particular benefit from this practice.  The parsley will attract wasps who will leave your veggies alone, but will kill the "tomato hornworm!"
