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.


I'd love to hear from you. It's nice to know other people are out there.
