The early cabbage went on the other side of the cauliflower. My companion planting guide says the nitrogen-fixing trait of the pea plant is good for cabbage varieties and may assist the growth of broccoli. I have also read that cabbage and broccoli near peas helps prevent root rot/mold in the peas. We'll see. I have never grown brassicas (cabbage/cauliflower/broccoli) before at all, much less attempted companion planting for these.
After my overwinter experiment, there are only a couple of sad little broccoli plants:
Here are the new sugar snap peas:
The remaining sad cauliflower:
The new early cabbage planted today:I am fully expecting the cauliflower and broccoli to perk up and grow big and strong like the rest! I am planning to add some interplanted nasturtium (sacrificial to attract aphids) and dill (to attract beneficial insects), and possibly some fennel and peppermint (to repel insects).
Share with me what you have planted today!
