Carrots and tomatoes

Carrots and tomatoes are supposed to complement each other when they’re planted together. I don’t know if they’re equally as beneficial. I have a sneaking suspicion that the carrots are helping the tomatoes more than the tomatoes help the carrots. But they are supposed to do better together, and so far they’re both doing well. I’ve had a lot of success with carrots before, but never much luck with tomatoes. So I’m hoping that will change this time.

One of the tomato plants looks like it might be getting ready to bloom. That’s good news. I would LOVE to get some nice tomatoes this time.

The zucchini never did much; the seeds were kind of old, so that might be the problem. The watermelon did great for a while but then something came along and ate all the leaves and that was all she wrote for the watermelon. The beans have done very well, but they also have some kind of pest, a very tiny flying thing, that coat the stems and beans like fur. They seem to suck the juices out of the plant. The beans that grew that didn’t get infested did very well, and I’ve had four crops. I’ve also let a couple go to seed, to see if I can get them to come up again next time…
