 Am I wrong in thinking that cedar wood is a natural insect repellant wood?

 no - you're not wrong....I'm thinking the same thing.

But eventually I'd imagine some bug would get to it.......maybe?

You are right...I just thought it would be a good idea to double protect it since dirt and water would be directly on it...

We have a cedar sided house and we just bought the sealer/toner and sealed it. You could always go to a log home supplier and get their products,too, but they sell that kind of stuff at the home improvement centers.

There has to be no harmful chemicals in the sealer ........It can leak into the food plants....
