I am filthy. I have dirt everywhere… nails, arms, legs, shoes… I’m pretty sure there is dirt in my ears. But the seedlings are in the ground! I confess, I didn’t just plant my seedlings. I cheated – I picked up a few started plants at a local nursery and my dad gave me a few squash plants and a tomato plant from his greenhouse yesterday. So those went into the ground today too!
And a few cheating plants…
Then I did a little companion planting in the ground:
- Tomatoes with pepper plants
- Marigolds interspersed with tomatoes
- Dill and cucumber
- Cucumber and green beans
- Green beans and rosemary
- Green beans and onions
It took a little while longer than just sticking things in the ground (which is what I usually do), but maybe it’ll make for some healthier plants.
