We have always had a garden. There’s just nothing like going out in the backyard to pick your own tomatos or corn. I love freezing bell peppers so we can enjoy them all winter long. We have a regular pattern of what we plant and how we line the rows. But the Mix & Match Guide to Companion Planting offers another perspective to my way of planting a garden. Instead of just planting by height or following the pattern we’ve done for years, maybe there is a reason to mix and match the vegetables and flowers to give them a boost in nutrients and help deter pests the natural way.
