Companion Planting: Tomatoes love Carrots

My how the tomatoes have grown in just a week's time.

Steve's seen here planting carrots near the tomatoes. . . a process called Companion Planting.  Companion Planting is the planting of different crops in proximity on the theory that they assist each other in nutrient uptake, pest control, pollination, and other factors necessary to increasing crop productivity.  Many of the modern principles of companion planting were present many centuries ago in cottage gardens in England and home gardens in Asia.  This process is very beneficial in eco-friendly vegetable gardening.
