My favourite new veggie combination!

I love to try new plant combos to see what works and what doesn't. This year I finished my experimentation with garlic and finally gave in - garlic does not want to be interplanted. I tried scattering leaf lettuce seed, and in a separate bed, onions in between the garlic shoots. The difference between the garlic in its own bed (selfish veggie!) and the interplanted crop was dramatic.. so, garlic wins.. it can enjoy its own spot in the garden.

On the other hand, the corn and soybeans are doing fantastic planted together!! Love it.. Plus, the different foliage textures and colours look very ornamental. Too bad it's too late to add this combo to my upcoming book.. I'll save it for book #2! :)

Happy Gardening!
