Sown and Harvest #11
Hello all my dear bloggies!
I would say summer had decided to finally drape across the Midwest like a soggy blanket. Phew- it is hot and humid! My veggie garden was off to a slow start because it was cool and damp for so long then BAM overnight the icky hot days of summer. Wouldn't it be nice if there was an in between?
I did a lot of companion planting this year. I planted marigolds pretty much everywhere in the garden beds.
Basil with tomatoes (and a few marigolds tucked in, lol)
Oregano with the peppers (all my extra marigolds ended up here)
I have a very large container of sage next to the brussel sprouts along with thyme in the bed and the small pot in front of it.
Rosemary with the carrots.
Radishes with all the squash
Spinach with the beans.
Pumpkins and corn together (Sort of a take on the Native American 3 sisters companion planting)
I tried trellising my cucumbers with upside down old & broken tomato cages. We'll see how it goes.
Here is the rundown of what's growing in my garden:
Fruits and Vegetables
Peppers (Hot, various)
Peppers (Sweet, Bell)
How about you? What's going on in your garden?
