Yes, it is amazing the things that we can learn from Ancient/Old Cultures. Actually, all of my ideas on companion planting and intermingling plants in rows comes from the horticultural practices of South American Natives. I recieved the information while taking an Environmental Studies course.
I think it is neat how the Corn plant supports the bean plant and the Bean plant feeds the corn plant. A sort of symbiotic relationship.
Oh my goodness!! I'm developing a baby ecosystem in my garden! What with all the beneficial insect attractors, mason Bee nests, mutualistic relationships between companion plants, you had better believe it!
Anyway, back outside to continue pruning my grapes.
