a close up of a green plant

Spring is in the air!!!  The groundhog didn't see his shadow and so it was predicted that there would be an early Spring.  The weather has been beautiful and although it is winter we are looking ahead to planting and focusing on the nuances in the worlds of sustainable agriculture, clean food, our environment, pollinator protection and growing good food with a high nutritional value.

When looking at our garden, we think of several ways to repel pests, control weeds and boost our garden's overall health.  Companion planting means growing two or more different plants in close proximity.  Incorporating plants that attract beneficial insects, deter pests or invigorate the soil will result in boosted garden resilience and enhance the health of your garden.  The close spacing typical of most companion planting naturally squeezes out weeds.  Some people say that  certain vegetables taste better when planted with marigolds or calendula.  Some marigolds release natural nematode repellents into the soil, making them a great companion for tomatoes and peppers.  "Three Sisters" planting include corn, beans and squash.  All are beneficial to the other.  Every garden is unique and companion planting increases the diversity of plants making for a healthier and happier garden.
