Here’s a drawing of my current plan for my community garden plot. (It’s almost legible – my writing is not the best.) I’ve changed from rows to beds. I’m going to experiment with companion planting this year, so I hope to mix in herbs or flowers with many of my crops.
Sally Cunningham the author of Great Garden Companions recommends tansy with beets. I have some nice tansy sprouts from winter sowing. What do you think about putting this aggressive (and pretty) plant in my plot? Tansy may repel potato beetles and squash but more importantly and it attracts a broad range beneficial insects.
