    […] Companion planting is based on the principle that plants can complement each other in mutually beneficial ways. For example, aphids will tend to stay away from tomatoes if chives are planted alongside them. Likewise, planting marigolds next to your pansies will help to keep slugs away. Companion planting can even help to discourage big pests like raccoons. As David Beaulieu explains, if you plant corn and squash together, pesky mammals wanting a sweet corn treat will be discouraged by the prickly squash vines crisscrossing their path. To learn more about companion planting, check out this article from Organic Gardening Magazine, or, if you just need to know what goes well together and what doesn't, try the Home and Garden Site. For personalized attention, don't hesitate to ask a master gardener. […]

    Preparing Your Fall Garden For Spring | Garden Harvest Supply
    October 13, 2015 at 10:21 am

    […] Test your garden soil and amend now:  In many situations, especially when it comes to adjusting the pH, it takes time for soil amendments to work; therefore, adding them now means your soil will be garden-ready come springtime and planting season. You don't have to take your soil to the local extension office to have it tested.  Soil testers are relatively inexpensive, though priceless in terms of determining what your soil needs to grow the healthiest and most beautiful plants and vegetables. Our selection of soil amendments is extensive. Be sure to read our three-part series (Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3) on soil and soil testing. We've tried to break it all down for you, in an easy-to-read and understand informational blog. If you still have questions, you are welcome to contact our Master Gardener. […]

    the large corporate tomato farms in south Florida have two growing seasons for tomatoes ………..and they take a two month break in the summer because of the heat.

    my question: while planting in the spring season yields a crop before the summer heat …… i able to maintain (keep) the same ‘mature’ indeterminate plants for another crop in the fall when the temperatures are right. (understanding, of course, that there’ll be no setting of fruit in the extreme temperatures of the summer.)

      Mel, for nonstop tomatoes you’ll need to plant in the spring and then again at the end of June. As the first season goes along the plant will start getting tired and production will drop. So replanting for a second season will give you a fresh crop! Happy growing!
