    corn rows!

    I went out for my first major weeding this last week. I have found so many tomato plants in my corn rows it is not funny any more. Hubby is going to have to plow up another two rows just so I can fit these in somewhere... I can't kill a plant, ya know... :haha:

    I am guessing that last year when we accidentally killed off half our tomatoes, these seeds came from the ones that dropped and rotted on the ground... I am wondering what is in our overgrown part now, as we've always just tossed the icky veggies over there.

    I also have a zucchini plant and an onion coming up in my corn rows as well.

    Anyone else have strays? :D

    Cool! I love strays of the veggie variety. They tend to be better adapted to the growing conditions. Wonder if the 3 sisters could turn into 4 sisters? Beans, corn, squash and tomatoes? Maybe you could leave a couple 3 mater plants 'mongst the corn? Let us know how they do together? HMMM?

    I don't think the tomatoes would like the shade of the corn.

    I don't know... what about the ones near the ends of the corn rows? They'd get the most sunlight... I may leave those and see how they do. The zucchini is definitely going to have to be moved, along with 90% of the tomatoes. :D
