Companion Planting Marigolds with Tomatoes

Dodging between the rain showers, I managed to get a bit of time on the plot.

The aim was to plant the Roma tomatoes out under cloche but first I had to get the cloches that were protecting the brassicas from the pigeons on plot 29, which ment I had to build another framework from bits of wood and old chair bases to attach some netting to.


My intention was to plant out 10 tomatoes but having got 7 plants in a row I thought that would suffice. Some of the plants looked a little ropy so picked the best to plant and discard the rest.


Interplanted the tomatoes with marigolds then watered the tomatoes in with water containing epsom salts. Hope they pick up!


The space left on the weed supressant fabric will have some courgettes and a cucumber when I can get on next. Meanwhile heavy black clouds were gathering . Grabbed a lettuce and a few radish then ran home as the heavens opened.
