Plants that carrots appear to “love” even more than tomatoes; and plants that do more good to tomatoes than carrots will do.

– Leek and carrots are true companions, with leeks repelling carrot flies, and carrots repelling leek moths and onion flies.
– Tomatoes and asparagus are also good companions because tomatoes contain solanine that repels the dreaded asparagus beetle.
– Carrots seem to have the capacity to help beans grow, and both vegetable types will thrive if interplanted with one another.
– Onions and tomatoes grow well together.

Some Different Types of Grape Tomatoes:

– Elfin, an open-pollinated type that is shorter than most other types.
– Rosalita, a pink grape tomato that epitomizes the size and shape of the true red grape tomato. These are indeterminate tomatoes that grow on tall, vigorous plants.
– Sprite, which is a much smaller plant that produces small, red, oval-shaped grape tomatoes. These are determinate plants that should bear large numbers of berries.

Extra Tips on Making Compost
– Chop everything up as fine as you can. This will speed up decomposition.
– Aerate compost mixture regularly by turning it over. Without air, the mix can become anaerobic. It will smell bad and can become too acidic to use.
– Don’t add meat, fats, citrus skins or onions.
– Keep the mixture damp. Too wet and there won’t be enough air in the mix, and too dry and decomposition will be very slow.
– Keep your compost bin in a semi-shaded area. Full sun can cause the compost to become too hot for earthworms. No sun will make the compost too cold.
