I have finally had a day in the garden… By day, I mean three ten minute excursions. By garden, I meant pulling weeds and trimming unwanted brush.
Having completed my first class in gardening, the most important thing I learned was that plants have friendships.
- Tomatoes like basil, carrots and marigolds. Chive is a friend, as well.
- Peppers like onions.
- Cucumbers like radishes, rosemary, and marigolds. They also like peas.
- Strawberries like lettuce, marigolds, and onions.
- Blackberries like hyssop.
I hope to endeavor to companion plant this year,
That way, as I enjoy the beautiful sunsets on my patio, I will know that my future harvest is feeling the love as well.
