Broccoli*****Allies: Beans, Celery, Potatoes, and Onions improve broccoli's growth and flavor. [Broccoli needs lot's of calcium, so plant it with low~calcium feeders like beets, nasturtiums, marigolds, or sage..]
####Do NOT plant Tomatoes near Broccoli or other Cabbage Family crops.
loose leaf lettuce****Strawberries, Carrots, Cucumbers, Cabbage~family crops and Beets.
And radishes too****(Good to have Clover as a cover crop)
sweet corn****Beans, Soybeans, Peanuts, or a row of Sunflowers around the beds..
also, Squash and Pumpkins do well in the shade of corn rows...
Solanuim melongena ( a eggplant) *****Green Beans
[Use the space between eggplant seedlings to grow an early crop of lettuce]
cucumber*****Radishes and Marigolds, Broccoli and Corn, Spiny Amaranth.
Cabbage Family Crops such as cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower.
####Do NOT plant Potatoes or Aromatic Herbs near cukes'....
pumpkin*****Corn, Beans, Sunflowers...(I have to add my 2 cents on this one, I put some sunflowers in the middle of my Giant Pumpkins and they the tendrils latched on to the sunflowers and pulled them down and under because the pumpkins were just to strong and heavy??? SO, figure out something to keep them up right.)

Beans*****Tomatoes, Corn, Celery, Cucumbers. ...

Squash****Radishes, Nasturtiums, Mint and other aromatic herbs, Corn, Sunflowers...

If you have any questions about them, don't hesitate, be glad to fill in some more..


P/S Got a couple more to go and I'll finish it up tonight!!!
**Got Church B~ball, lunch with the team, grocery shopping and out to dinner tonight.. so it'll be late...*

done this have entertained angels without realizing it.

I'll have to figure which side to grow the corn.
I'll watch the pumpkin vines or grow them near the 5th wheel for Debras kids to watch grow.If the pool was to get moved ontime......(yeah right,but that thang better be MOVIN soon.I start swimmin in march.I could grow in that spot,but I'm able to start a 2nd crop in july,but they are smaller sized.

I got mammoth sunflowers that will do well back there....ceept for the crows who lerk above my compost pile.I'm wanting some of them rustish ones like capachino&moulin rouge.
Not sure broccoli is a good idea to grow in ground for me.My dog will eat broccoli....with or with out cheese cooked or raw

Melons.I just know they do better when leaves shade the fruits& need to know how many plants I should try for.Fruit amount is not a problem.I can chop& freeze.

I'll still do my tomotoes in hanging baskets.I'm hooked there.

I got some peat jiffy pots so will be filling those soon.
I'll check back latter.
I shopped too long in walmart.I did buy the pink anthuruim.after my 1st beer.....said screw digging the garden.
