Media bed and half of a tower are planted! Here in the media bed we have:
  • 'Emerald Delight' zucchini that was planted prior
  • Ichiban-type Japanese eggplant
  • 'Ace 55' canning tomato
  • Assorted multicolored cherry tomato varieties
  • English marigold
  • Four nasturtium starter plugs (buried in the bed - I am going to try and see if I can get them to germinate directly in the bed as oppopsed to a plug tray)

And in the half-tower:
  • Petunias (companion plant that repels various pest insects)
  • Mexican/French marigold (also a companion plant)
  • Chives (obviously an herb, and being an allium, its flowers also repel many pest insects)

Another half tower of herbs and a full tower of 5 different pepper varieties are coming next!
