I read that if you plant pole beans by corn, the beans will use the corn as the poles~anchoring the corn in the ground and offering support for the beans.
I will never do that again.
The corn didn't grow fast enough for the beans and thus, I had to teepee the things, but now, the corn will likely be suffocated by bean teepee. Thankfully, a neighbor does really wonderful growing corn and sells it pretty cheap.
That experiment? Failed.
Radishes are growing great. Even though I hate them. I planted them only to deter bugs from the cukes. Maybe I will force myself to like them.
The one row of corn that may survive....planted JUST outside the teepee zone. Hello corn! I've tried to grow corn before and it has never worked, so this row is especially beautiful to me.
My first flowers from my cutting garden. The wildflower seeds didn't take (whaaaaaaa!) but the zinnias, cosmos and gladiolas are looking good!
