Do your vege plants play well together?  Yep -- that's right there's such a thing as "companion gardening" and some plants grow well with certain others, and others, not so much!  I guess plants are more human than we thought, right?  For example, tomatoes love cucumbers, peppers and onions, but they would prefer not to be planted near potatoes or cabbage.  Cucumbers are not happy with potatoes either.  Peas thrive near beans and carrots, but don't do well planted with onions.  It may sound all a little too complicated and gardening is not suppose to be this technical!  To help you understand a little about nature's way, you can find a easy to follow companion growing chart at  Have fun playing in your garden!
