Companion Planting for Raised Bed Garden
Kaaaaaaarin! You know what's coming, right? Is it OK with you if I add this photo (crediting you, of course!) to the Garden Planning 101? (It'll stay here, where it is, too. It'll just add it there, as well—pending your OK.)
The bed construction is 8 x 8 x 16 header block stacked 2 high with rebar reinforcement for stability - herbs will be planted in the holes of the block as shown. A canopy of PVC and connectors will hold the UV fabric so the plants don't cook in the Florida sun and there will be 5 - 4" PVC pipes with holes for composting material for the earth worms to fertilize my garden. Companion planting was used in this layout as oregano & nasturium keep beetles away from melons and squash - rhubard helps keep black fly's off the bean plants; swiss chard provides shade for the hot pepper plants; and some plants just like each other.
Ooooh, Karin. Before you post that post on companion planting, would you consider doing it as a 101? Let me know, and I can send you a few notes. (Fingers crossed.)
Sure Jennifer - I would love to do it as a 101 if you'll be so kind as to walk me through how to do it.
Consider yourself recruited! I'll send you a note shortly. Thank you!
