Companion Planting

Gainesville Sights



Beans + corn + pumpkin (squash) = Companion Planting. It makes total sense. The corn provides a stalk for the beans to climb. The squash provides ground cover. Lots of it.



We have some very cold temps overnight here in Gainesville, FL. That makes it not a very good time to do any spring planting. But, soon, we'll return to normal and look out!… Continue

Juicers, Beauty and Living a Life of Integrity and Joy
