Vegetable Garden, Bed 1

Bed 1 – Solanacea

These beds contain mostly plants from the Solanaceae family – Tomatoes, Peppers, Tomatillos, Ground Cherries, Pepino, etc. with basil and marigolds as companion plants.  Many of these plants are heavy feeders, so this bed is top dressed with compost each year, and may even receive supplemental fertilization.  This is always one of the hardest beds for me to narrow down candidates.  If I could only grow one thing in my garden, it would be tomatoes and their relatives.

Bed Equipment:  12 TALL tomato cages
