Overall, we have marigolds (which are a natural pest repellent and companion plant to most all plants), corn, several kinds of lettuce, green beans, cucumbers, radishes, carrots, tomatoes, green peppers, cherry tomatoes, roma tomatoes, banana peppers, jalapenos, sugar snap peas, watermelon, strawberries, raspberry bushes, and canteloupe. Whew!
We also have about 20 square feet left, and I'm trying to decide what to do with it. I will probably do more marigolds in 5 of the square feet, and then basil, dill, chives, oregano, and mint in another 5 (one plant per sq foot). I don't use rosemary or cilantro much, and I'm allergic to lavender, so those are out. Justin thinks we should do another 5 sq feet (5 plants) of tomatoes...but we already have 10 plants of tomatoes, plus an upside down one. I think we will have PLENTY. I'm kind of thinking of getting more varieties of peppers because I've heard a lot of people only get 1 or 2 peppers per plant. Any recommendations?
