I just planned out my garden and it took me HOURS to do, depending on how tall plants are that need to go in the back and I couldn't plant over the same crop and companion planting, etc.
So maybe I looked at a not so accurate companion planting guide cuz nowhere did it say not to plant corn and tomatoes next to each other, so, of course, those two plants being the tallest I stuck in the back of my garden right next to each other. Then, I just read on here in an older post NOT to plant them near each other cuz the corn ear worm and the tomato fruit worm were the same thing and will migrate from tomatoes to corn and vice versa.
So now what do I do? I really don't have time to redo my plan, but maybe I can stick a plant between them? How far should corn and tomatoes be from one another? Is there a plant I can put between them that will stop that darn worm from migrating between the tomatoes and corn?
I know I have seen little wormy things trying to get into the silks of the corn before, but I have never seen anything on my tomatoes. Last year they were about 10 feet from each other, but I don't have the room to do that this year.
ETA: I mean a small plant to put between them that might deter plant swapping? I only have like a foot and a half from where the tomatoes end and the corn starts.
