Green and Spicy Crops in Your Gardens (Part 2)

Green and Spicy Crops in Your Gardens (Part 2)


It should be admitted that in reality, of course, in addition to dill and parsley in our region, it is difficult to attribute any more to spices, since the original territory of their residence is located much south of the Urals, and other more northern regions. But, nevertheless, many of these southern spices, both in our harsh conditions, and in the North-West region, it is quite possible to grow and even get quite decent results.

The most common of these spices, and relatively simple in terms of agricultural technology, I will give in the table.

Spice nameFeatures of agricultural technologyApplicationBasil of Yerevan. Annual herbIt is very thermophilic and photophilous, therefore, in the garden, it should be given a sunny, windless and warm place (high ridge, greenhouse).

Used with tomatoes, beans, pizza, spaghetti, sauces. It goes well with meat, fish and vegetable dishes. It is also used for pickling and preserving cucumbers, tomatoes and porcini mushrooms.Oregano.

It is also used for pickling cucumbers and tomatoes.Chervil. Annual herbPut up with shading, loves moist soil. It grows very quickly, so over the summer you can sow 2-3 times.

Perennial herbaceous dwarf shrubPhotophilous, drought-resistant and very thermophilic. In winter, lavender freezes out in our country, so it is grown, as a rule, in an annual culture. However, you can transfer 1-2 plants for the winter indoors, put in a bright and cold place, but protected from frost, and in the spring, propagate by cuttings and plant on the site. I prefer to grow it in a greenhouse in the summer. As for sowing seeds, you need to remember that they must undergo mandatory stratification, otherwise they will not sprout.

It goes well with tea, sauces, fruit salads, ice cream, desserts, liqueurs. It is added to dishes in a very finely chopped form.Cucumber herb (borago). Annual herbVery hygrophilous.

It is good in any salads and soups, added to potatoes, vegetables, meat and fish.Purslane. Annual herbPhotophilous and hygrophilous enough. With a lack of moisture, the shoots become woody, and their taste deteriorates significantly. The leaves and the upper part of the young shoots are used for food, cutting off the greens shortly before flowering.A herb with a delicate salty flavor, used in salads, soups and sauces. Purslane leaves can be stewed and fried, and canned purslane is considered a good seasoning for meat dishes.Rosemary. Perennial evergreen dwarf shrubExtremely photophilous and thermophilic.

For many centuries, European culture, European values ​​and the European way of life have served the whole world as a universal yardstick and standard, but today Europe has exhausted itself, and the place of the "ruler of thoughts" is vacant.According to Oleg Matveychev, one of the leading Russian political scientists, Russia can and should take him.

But a demonstration of economic and military might is not enough for this, and the aggressive rhetoric of an egoistic country will completely reduce all efforts to nothing. Russia needs to "fall in love" with the whole world by offering it something unprecedented and extremely attractive. To do this, she must acquire the sovereignty of the spirit - learn to think in her own categories, create a new philosophy, rely on the development of education, science, art, and become the main center of high-tech and high-hum.

The sovereignty of the state, the author argues, does not rest on economics, politics or military force, sovereignty rests on spiritual authority, which means that "philosophers and poets" are more important than commanders and politicians. Cultural expansion is more important than military or economic expansion.

Read about what awaits Russia in the 21st century, how to implement such a daring and ambitious plan and what dangers threaten us on this path - read in the book of Oleg Matveychev. The book "Sovereignty of the Spirit" is a collection of articles devoted to the search and development of Russian state ideology methods of its promotion.

This book is an expanded and revised version of the 2007 book Sovereignty of the Spirit. Almost every article has been revised. Significant additions made. The article "Electronic Controversy" has been enlarged several times. Separate articles appeared: "State and corruption", "What should we do with the Far East", "For the re-education of the oligarchs."

Gingerbread man. Gangster poems with bureaucrats

A fairy tale from the culinary and linguistic series "Drinking Poems for Children". Imitation of the gangster poems of Roald Dahl, known for his cynical interpretations of Snow White, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and other Western European fairy tales. Kolobok focuses on the spelling of derivative prepositions (highlighted in red), which are so called because they are derived from other parts of speech, most often from nouns (highlighted in green).

In addition, the adverbs "to meet", "finally", the adverbial words "hardly", "like", as well as conjunctions "because", "because", "instead of" and other difficult constructions ... By the way a person says: “upon arrival” or “upon arrival”, the people around make a conclusion about his culture and respect for his native language.

It seems to many that "upon arrival" sounds clumsy, but nothing can be done - these are the rules. Take it easy gangster poems will help.


Influence of plants placed on the same bed


Practical knowledge about mixed planting of vegetables in the beds, the compatibility of garden, garden plants, their influence on each other has been accumulated by many generations of gardeners. We try to learn more about them, get to know them, take this knowledge into account in our practice. Sometimes, however, they are quite contradictory. For example, there seem to be many assurances of the incompatibility of growing cucumbers and tomatoes in the same greenhouse. This is explained by the various requirements of these vegetables to the conditions of detention, temperature, humidity. But, nevertheless, for many they get along well with each other.

Mixed plantings will allow you to use the land wisely, saving space on the beds. This is especially important for small gardens where a significant number of plants need to be grown. Thus, you can get a high yield even on 2-3 acres. If you correctly place and alternate summer cottage crops in accordance with the table of plant compatibility in the garden, then the soil will not be healthy and fertile.

Plant compatibility

Plants secrete various substances through the roots, mainly organic - amino acids, sugars, biologically active substances, antibiotics, hormones, enzymes, others that can affect neighboring plants, both positively and negatively.

Plants also release various substances through the leaves - most often volatile ones. But they can also release water-soluble ones, which are washed off by rain or watering, get into the soil, and have a different effect on neighboring plants.

These properties - the influence on each other - the plants acquired during a long evolution, when they all grew together in natural conditions. They had to compete, to establish some kind of relationship with each other. It is assumed that this property - allelopathy - is developed by plants in the process of competing for light, water, nutrients in the soil. In this competitive struggle, plants can even use chemical protection, that is, they release chemicals: enzymes, vitamins, alkaloids, essential oils, organic acids, phytoncides.

Some of these compounds are similar in properties to herbicides used to kill weeds. These substances, called inhibitors (inhibitors), kill neighboring plants or retard their growth, inhibit seed germination, and reduce the intensity of physiological processes and their vital activity.

It is important to note that inhibitors work negatively only when there are many of them. Their small concentrations already act as accelerators of physiological processes, that is, as stimulants.

Compatible planting of various crops

Representatives of plants of the Liliaceae family (various types of onions and garlic) grow very well next to plants of the Umbrella family (carrots, radishes, celery, parsley and parsnips) and Cruciferous (cabbage).

Favorably yes I also have them in the neighborhood with tomatoes, salad, strawberries, potatoes, cucumbers. From flowers, you can plant petunias, chamomiles nearby. It is useful to plant savory and chamomile in small quantities around the beds with onions.

Various vegetable crops successfully coexist in the beds with white and black radish.

For many plants, spinach is favorably placed next to it. Its roots release saponins into the soil, which enhance the growth of many crops (potatoes, tomatoes, beets, beans). Also, spinach creates a special microclimate around itself. Its leaves cover the soil and keep it moist and loose. Because of this, spinach is often used as an accompanying plant. It is planted between the rows of slower growing plants, and while the main crops are just emerging, spinach has time to grow and creates favorable conditions for them.

A root vegetable such as radish grows well next to bush beans. This neighborhood has a positive effect on its taste and size, and also protects against damage by worms and cabbage flies. It is recommended to plant radishes 2 weeks before planting bush beans.

Watercress and nasturtium can also help grow large radishes.

For beans, it will be useful if you plant some celery nearby. Beans grow well along with cucumbers, corn, cabbage, strawberries, pumpkin, beets, carrots. The savory growing nearby has a positive effect on the taste of beans.

Herbs and flowers are sometimes good neighbors for vegetable plants. For example, amaranths have a positive effect on eggplants. You can put a salad between the eggplants, and basil around them.

For watermelons, nearby areas with potatoes, oats, corn and peas will be useful. For melons, only radishes are a good neighbor.

Cabbage is distinguished by its many types. The most popular of them are white, colored, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, kohlrabi. They grow better next to onions (any), beans, herbs (mint, chamomile, sage, dill). Potatoes have a positive effect on the taste of cabbage, so these plants are suitable for mixed planting.

Dill sown between cabbage rows significantly improves its taste.

For the most common type of cabbage, white cabbage, the best neighbors are onions, potatoes, lettuce, celery, radishes, bush beans and dill.

Broccoli grows well next to onions, lettuce, beets and celery.

For potatoes, successful neighbors in the garden are eggplants, beans, cabbage (especially cauliflower), corn, carrots, beets, lettuce, radishes, beans, horseradish, garlic, and from herbs and flowers - amaranth, nasturtium, tansy, coriander, spinach. With mixed planting, potatoes are more resistant to disease.

Corn creates a shadow next to it, in which cucumbers, watermelons, pumpkins grow well. For the corn itself, bush and climbing beans, potatoes, and soybeans turn out to be a favorable neighbor.

Legumes enrich the soil with nitrogen, which is very necessary for corn, which, in turn, provides these climbing plants as a support.You can also plant tomatoes, lettuce, sunflowers next to corn.

Pepper favorably coexists with basil. These plants help each other grow.

The place next to cucumbers is suitable for peas, white cabbage and cauliflower, kohlrabi, radish, onion, lettuce, celery, beetroot, parsley, sunflower and beans. Also, tansy and sow thistle have a positive effect on cucumbers. Dill, sown among cucumbers, prolongs the period of their fruiting, and therefore increases the yield.

For parsnips, a place next to legumes and radishes will be useful.

Tomatoes, cabbage, leeks, bush beans can be planted next to the celery bed. In the shade of these plants, celery grows more aromatic.

Crops such as legumes, carrots, cucumbers and radishes are planted with the salad.

Tomatoes go well in garden beds next to onions, garlic, carrots, parsley and many flowers. If there are nettles next to the tomatoes, then they will have a more pronounced taste. Also, the growth of this beloved vegetable crop and the improvement of its taste characteristics are facilitated by the tubular monarda.

It is recommended to plant tomatoes, lettuce, onions, radishes, radishes and dill next to carrots.

To get a good harvest of beets, it is useful to plant carrots, cabbage (with the exception of cauliflower), radishes, lettuce, parsley and dill nearby.

For the pumpkin, you can pick up neighbors such as corn, nasturtiums. Sow thistles growing nearby may be helpful.

The place next to the radish is suitable for carrots, cucumbers, parsnips, beets, tomatoes, pumpkin, and spinach.

Spicy herbs emit a large amount of aromatic substances with volatile properties into the external environment. Thus, they affect those plants that are planted nearby. Spicy herbs are widely used in cooking and medicine and are often found in vegetable gardens among vegetables and berry plants. It is also necessary to select them correctly for joint plantings.

Most vegetables are favorably influenced by parsley, borage, lavender, marjoram, hyssop, chervil, chamomile, savory, thyme, sage, dill growing nearby. Dandelion helps vegetables and apple trees grow. This plant releases a substance (ethylene) into the environment that accelerates fruit ripening.

Many spicy herbs release substances into the environment that have a beneficial effect on other plants (repel pests, disinfect the air, enhance growth). Such plants are called companion plants. These include anise, basil, mustard, coriander, hyssop, mint, marjoram, lemon balm, cumin, dill.

Certain herbs are capable of enhancing each other's aromatic properties. For example, if you plant yarrow next to the nettle, then it will be more fragrant, and if mint, the content of essential oils in it will increase by 2 times.

➣ If you plant an oak, birch, linden or poplar next to the garden, then the fruit trees will be in comfortable conditions and will hurt less and bear fruit well. These trees can be placed on the garden plot or along the edges of the garden.

Oregano and marjoram have a positive effect on the growth and taste of many cultivated plants.

Snakehead (Turkish mint) creates a shade in which cucumbers feel good, which is reflected in their yield.

Coriander is a good neighbor to anise, cumin, and many vegetables. It has a positive effect on the structure of the soil, and therefore vegetables can be planted next to the overwintered coriander without digging up the garden bed.

Hyssop is useful to plant next to grapes, this significantly increases the productivity of the latter.

Lovage can be planted anywhere in the garden. It is a useful neighbor for many vegetables and improves their taste, increases disease resistance.

Mint is found in many vegetable gardens. This plant is useful to plant next to tomatoes and cabbage. The harvest will be more abundant and the taste of the vegetables will be improved. Mint grows well among sorrel. The main thing is to make sure that the mint does not grow too much.

Strawberries grow better next to cucumber grass (borago). It is important not to let it grow and prune the bushes in a timely manner. Borage also increases the resistance of other plants to various diseases. It enhances the growth of peas, cabbage, onions, beans, and many herbs.

Parsley has a positive effect on the taste of tomatoes. You can plant it around rose bushes. A good neighborhood is parsley and onions. First, parsley seeds are sown in rows in spring, and after 2 weeks leek seedlings are planted between them. Both crops will grow well.

The following crops grow well next to celery: onions, cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, spinach.

A plant such as rue goes well in the area with vegetable and flower crops, as well as fruit trees and shrubs.

Dill grows by self-seeding in many vegetable gardens. This does not always have a positive effect on the harvest. The roots of this plant secrete substances that are not good for all vegetables. Therefore, it is better to plant dill specifically next to lettuce, cabbage, onions, cucumbers.

Sage is a useful neighbor for all types of cabbage and carrots, as well as strawberries.

Thyme has a beneficial effect on vegetables growing nearby and improves their taste. It is especially suitable for tomatoes, eggplants and potatoes. Savory improves the growth of eggplants.

Some weeds may be useful neighbors for crops. Japanese farmer-scientist Masanobu Fukuoka, the founder of one of the directions in organic farming, came to the conclusion that there is no need to carry out continuous weeding in the fields and gardens or use herbicidal preparations. He believes that weeds contribute to the maintenance of soil fertility and balance in biogeocenoses. M. Fukuoka recommends not completely destroying weeds, but periodically mowing or limiting growth by mulching.

He also advises creating a grass cover in gardens on the soil from useful weeds or siderates. This has become common in Japan, and bare earth is rarely seen in gardens there. With insufficient soil moisture in arid regions, the tree trunks around the trees are left free for watering and care, and the rest of the territory in the gardens is planted with ground cover siderates. This principle can be applied to small private gardens as well. In free large areas among ground cover plants, beds with cultivated plants (vegetables, herbs) can be placed. For example, small islands of thistle thistle in the garden favor the growth of onions, maize and tomatoes. The main thing is not to let this weed grow.

Various grasses are used for planting in the aisles in vineyards. Plants useful for grapes additionally protect the soil from water erosion during watering and overdrying. The greatest benefits for the growth of grapes come from corn. For him, auxiliary vegetable crops - oil radish and radish - are also good neighbors. Parsley has a revitalizing effect on the vineyards. Peas, onions, cauliflower, watercress, beets contribute to the growth of grapes. Beans, strawberries, carrots, cucumbers, melon, and dill are less significant for increasing the yield of grapes.

Of the trees and shrubs for grapes, pear, schisandra chinensis and actinidia are compatible. These plants can be planted next to each other. You can also plant grapes and actinidia around your fence or gazebo.

Floral plants, such as asters, geraniums, forget-me-nots, phlox, can also increase the yield of grapes. The irises planted nearby are not beneficial, but also do not harm this plant.

From plants, you can create a hedge around a garden or vegetable garden. At the same time, shrubs for it need to be selected taking into account not only decorativeness or height, but also compatibility with grown plants. Hedges made of privet, elderberry, spirea, and wild rose are beautiful and useful for harvesting.These shrubs have a healing effect on the garden. In the garden, growing nearby cherries and raspberries significantly increases the yield. Apple and raspberry heals each other. Raspberries store nitrogen in themselves and increase the oxygen content in the soil, which is beneficial for the apple tree. It is recommended to plant these crops close to each other, but be careful not to overgrow the raspberries.

A combination of barberry with plum or honeysuckle in the garden has a positive effect on the yield.

Strawberries and some medicinal plants (oregano, chamomile) grow well under sea buckthorn. It is useful to plant onions between currant bushes and leave them in the winter.

Hawthorn grows well at a distance of 4 m from cherry and sweet cherry. If these trees are planted closer, the hawthorn will be in the shade and wither away.

The apple and pear tree are good neighbors. A distance of at least 3.5-4 m is maintained between them, otherwise when the trees grow, they will be cramped and the effect will be the opposite.

Cornelian cherry grows and bears fruit next to the apricot. You can even plant these plants close to each other, they will still be compatible. Dogwood can even grow with walnut, which is a solitary plant. All other cultivated plants grow poorly next to it.

It is permissible to plant plums and cherries at a distance of 5 m from each other. They will bear fruit well. The plum must not be allowed to be between the cherry and the sweet cherry. In such conditions, the tree will die.

For strawberries, nearby parsley, bush beans, spinach will be useful. You can also plant onions, cabbage, radishes, radishes, lettuce, beets and garlic next to it.

If the land plot is zoned into a garden and a vegetable garden, then spicy herbs (anise, basil, lemon balm, coriander, parsley, thyme and tarragon) are planted between fruit trees and vegetables.

In order to navigate in the choice of cultivated plants for growing, as well as the timing of their planting and location on the site, it is recommended to draw a diagram of the garden in advance. This will help to correctly arrange beds with different plants, outline mixed plantings, check the compatibility of all plants growing next to each other. For the next year, this scheme must be changed according to the rules of crop rotation. This requires additional consideration of the compatibility of plants with predecessors.

When choosing plants for adjacent beds, it is also necessary to take into account the fact that some plants are protectors against any diseases or pests (animals, insects, worms).

Plant compatibility can be used to increase overall yield in other ways. Plants for compacted plantings are also selected taking into account the height and volume that they occupy. By choosing the right plants, you can make compacted beds.

Plants planted next to each other will not interfere with each other, but, on the contrary, mutually enhance growth. Care for them is almost the same, so they grow comfortably in the same bed.

Compacted landings can be done simultaneously, i.e. sow the garden bed with selected crops at once, or in stages. You can harvest some crops and plant others in the vacant space. This approach allows not only to grow healthy and well-bearing plants, but also to save land area.

On compacted beds, the main plant and the compaction plant are distinguished. Usually the latter is characterized by a shorter period of reaching technical ripeness.

Eggplants, carrots, corn, zucchini, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, beets, celery are often used as the main crops. Sealing crops are onions, cauliflower and Chinese cabbage, lettuce, radish, beans, pumpkin, garlic, and dill. Typically, compact and undersized plants are used as compacting crops. It is important to correctly position the main and compact crops on the same bed.For example, you can occupy the central part of the garden with beets, and plant radishes, lettuce, dill in rows along the edges.

Filling crops yield quickly and are harvested from the garden, and the main crop continues to grow until late summer or fall.

Berry bushes can be included in hedges. In this case, the defensive barrier turns out to be denser and even prickly. From berry bushes, gooseberries, raspberries, black currants are suitable for this. They bear fruit well next to each other.

Plants such as tomato, cabbage, take up a lot of space in the beds and are combined with small vegetables - onions, carrots, radishes. Fast-yielding crops (napa cabbage, lettuce, spinach) are conveniently planted as compacting plants or after harvesting the main crops. For long-growing crops (carrots, parsley), it is recommended to plant plants that quickly reach technical ripeness.

Optimal for compacted beds are combinations of tomato and pepper with cabbage basil and tomatoes with mint parsley with tomatoes, peas or strawberries, onions, cucumbers, lettuce or cabbage with dill.


How to fertilize tomatoes

Hello dear gardeners and gardeners!

About, how to fertilize tomatoes when planting seedlings, as well as in the post-planting period, you will find out by reading this article.

The yield of tomatoes depends on many factors. Plants require careful maintenance up to harvesting. The soil in the beds should be sufficiently moist, the soil should be loose and breathable, enriched with nutrients to ensure optimal growth and development of plants for the entire growing season.

Abundant soil fertilization and regular root dressing are necessary for the favorable development of stems, leaves, flowers and healthy fruits. Not the last place in increasing the crop yield is played by regular weeding, fairly frequent watering, and the fight against pests and fungal diseases of the crop.

Basic rules of crop rotation for tomatoes

It should be emphasized that the predecessors of tomatoes should not be plants of the nightshade family - potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, scented tobacco, physalis, since they have common pests and diseases, and they choose the same chemical elements for good nutrition. It is also undesirable to plant tomatoes after late varieties of cabbage and all types of peppers. But after zucchini, pumpkin, onion, legumes, beets, carrots, corn and green manure herbs, tomatoes feel great in the garden.

The beds for tomatoes are broken in well-lit areas of the site, since a lack of ultraviolet radiation can provoke the development of dangerous late blight. This crop grows on various types of soil, but the land enriched with organic matter, in particular peat, humus and compost, contributes to the improvement of plant development and is the key to high yields.

The best results are obtained by combining organic and mineral fertilizers, most of which are applied by experienced gardeners during autumn digging or early spring, scattering them around the site. It is advisable to add some of the fertilizers to the planting holes when planting seedlings. And during the entire period of growth, fertilizing is carried out, combining them with watering.

The rates of application of beneficial nutrients depend on the fertility of the land on your site. Organic matter is added at the rate of 3 to 9 kg per sq. m beds. It is believed that during autumn digging it is better to close up manure, ready-made compost and peat, and in spring - rotted manure (humus). About 2/3 of the recommended doses of mineral fertilizers are applied during the autumn digging (potassium and phosphorus), and the remaining third and full dose of nitrogen fertilizers are applied in the spring.

If the soil on your site is highly fertile, then you can get by with a half dose of organic matter in combination with mineral fertilizers. Depleted soils require the introduction of both organic and mineral components. The approximate amount of mineral fertilizers per sq.meter (recommended dosages): nitrogen compositions 10-30, phosphorus - 30-65, potash - 10-35. The choice of top dressing, its quantity and quality ratio depends on the composition of the soil on the site.

A couple of weeks after planting tomatoes in open ground, the first top dressing is carried out, combining organic matter and mineral components. The following composition of components has proven itself well: 45-50 g of superphosphate (double), the same amount of potassium sulfate, 1.5 cups of ash, 1/2 g of boric acid and 0.3 g of manganese sulfate are added to a bucket of mullein solution. The solution is poured over the plants under the root. This amount is designed for about 19-22 bushes. The second feeding with the same composition is advisable to be carried out 3 weeks after the first, since it is during this period that intensive fruit setting begins.

Even a novice gardener can get a bountiful harvest of tomatoes on his site. Now knowing how to fertilize tomatoes and by following the above recommendations, you can work wonders on your tomato beds. Have a nice summer season, friends!


Organization of a vegetable garden on the site


When arranging a garden, you should not blindly copy someone else's experience, but it is worth knowing some general principles

At all you should not blindly copy someone else's experience, especially if this is an experience gained in a different soil and climatic zone. But what about? What to do for novice gardeners?


How to most effectively distribute the beds in a 3 acres vegetable garden?

I would like to plant and sow everything, but somehow it turns out not very well.
And you want it somehow like in the picture!

I had just 3 acres of a vegetable garden, not counting the residential and economic zone. I mastered them by hand, gradually, and it’s good that I didn’t kill myself on all three hundred square meters. That's a lot for manual labor! And before planting vegetables, I drew a diagram of my three hundred square meters with the help of a photo editor. Something like this.

And then it is already easier to imagine what and where will go, and in what quantity. The "main vegetable garden" consists of ten ridges 10 meters long. "Green weaving" - in development, but already meted out.
Draw yourself! Imagine, tie to reality.

I didn’t study Mittlider) But I made big passages. the truth and my garden bed is 1 meter ... But my arms-legs are long, it is convenient for me.

Olya! I am happy with the potatoes, also with the fact that I planted them and forgot about them. I added hay once more and I don’t go up to it until autumn… I don’t weed, I don’t huddle twice. and it is convenient in the boxes, even if and like Inna has water, there is no water in the boxes! they are raised above the ground. I have a device like G. Kizima, cardboard and mulch for turf. started with two beds for potatoes, and now six, but they are enough for me! I plant everything on them.
for a vegetable garden together with a greenhouse of 2 acres,
30 tomatoes, 20 peppers basil 4 bushes cucumber 6- this is a greenhouse and a vegetable garden: 6 ridges 0.7x10 row spacing 1m
1st: onion 600g leeks and carrots
2nd: garlic 150 pcs strawberries
3rd :, beetroot 15 late cabbage, kohlrabi 15, cauliflower 20, brusselka 4 and marigolds, peas and beans
4th: potatoes
5th potato on the ends of the pumpkin
6th: greens and root celery, zucchini

100 bushes of strawberries or strawberries grow separately in round beds,
spicy herbs are planted in flower beds: lemon balm, mint, thyme, lavender, etc., recently I also plant zucchini
strawberries are never enough! strawberries too!
I plant bitter pepper in pots on the sills at the entrance, I also plant curly beans there
