comment What plants will deter mosquitoes?
So I have now experienced this. We used to have mosquitoes really terribly because we are right next to a scrap yard and a cemetery. Both have all kinds of standing water and unhealthy ponds. We added a healthy pond to our property and the mosquito population has dropped precipitously. They're still here, but not half as bad. When they land on the water to lay eggs, they get eaten by tad poles. The many frogs attracted do their piece as do the dragon flies it brought. If we added fish, it would probably be even more effective.

comment What herbaceous plants like acid soil, blueberries and white pine mulch?
Awesome! That's a start, but do you know which of those do well with pine. Pine does more than just make the soil acidic ;). Whatever it does, the blueberries seem to love it, but I know a lot of things hate it.
