Oh, Those Rascally French

They think of everything.   Last Spring, I found I had too many tomato plants and the bed was full so I decided to plant the excess among the flowers in another part of the garden.

This morning, I looked around the flower beds and made an observation – the tomatoes and also peppers that I’d grown in flower beds were doing much better than the ones I had in the vegetable bed.  I’d read that the French like to plant vegetables and flowers in the same bed.  They call it Potaging and I guess that makes me a Potager.  Well almost.  There was no critter nor insect damage on the plants and they seemed much bigger and stronger.  Furthermore, the soil in those beds was nowhere near as good as in the vegetable bed where I’d tilled and manured and worked myself silly.

So, guess what I’ll be doing next year?  Count on it.
