Kim, Justin & I planted some different kinds of squash in the terrace; Feel free to plant Sunflowers, Cucumbers or other climbing fruits in between the squash.
Plant fruiting annuals like tomatoes, tomatillos, eggplant, peppers, or other companion plants in the 3rd and 4th terraces. Feel free to put annual or perennial herbs in between fruiting plants, but try to look up compatability / companion plants to keep pests away and promote better fruits. To see a good list of companion plants, visit this site.
Here’s a map of what we have done so far.
The plants are marked with markers and/or sticks. Please don’t uproot them when you plant and be sure to mark your plants so that they are not uprooted by other ambitious gardeners!
Who would be on board to working on the Kid’s Plot? If anybody has an old swingset they’d like to donate to the garden, we’d love to have it there for them and let beans other climbers go to town! Anything that would be fun for the kids to plant, pick, eat and/or play on, would be fantastic.
