Is there a place to find info
« on: December 13, 2011, 11:09:11 PM »
on what vegetables are good matches to plant next to each other?  Any help on that would be much appreciated. 

Small back yard and trying to make the most of the limited space.

Thanks

I've run into a few snags with planting not so friendly neighbors and I would rather not keep doing it.  Since it's time to get my seeds I figured now is the time.

As a first timer this past spring, I did google searches on 'companion planting' and 'square foot gardening'.  You could even add 'planning' to the search and it should kick out some sample layouts.

I then thought about the space needed for the big plants that I wanted to grow (like squash and tomato) and place them on a grid/spreadsheet.  Then I matched up the large plants according to size for sun exposure (like cucumbers, peas) and companion-'ability' (radishes around the cukes) and filled in smaller plants in the same manner (like carrots, radishes, etc) around the bigger plants.

Some of the early podcasts address that issue.  i'm new, so I'm still in the 20s and Jack was discussing garden arrangement in two separate podcasts.
