I like to intermix plants and use the traits of one to benefit another. I like to plant zucchini, squash pumpkin etc on the north side of my potatoes. The potatoes are planted earlier and grow faster, by the time the potatoes go to flowering my other plants are climbing over them using them as a support system. While potato plants are not prolific flowering plants they do create more flowers to help attract pollinators to the blooming plants growing over the top of them. Over the years I have often had trouble with my radishes bolting straight to seed, even if I plant when there is still snow on the ground they just grow so slowly in the cold spring weather that they aren't much of anything by the time it warms up. When it warms up they tend to grow fast but go straight to seed. I stumbled across the answer to this about a decade ago reading an article that mentioned the most popular bar snack in Germany was radish seed pods. Up to that point I had never heard of eating a radish seed pod before. So rather than let plants go all the way to full grown seed I started harvesting the young seed pods and voilla. In a bad year where all my radishes go to seed I can get a basket full of juicy tasty seed pods instead of a single radish... Honestly I have come to prefer the seed pods over the one singular radish. In a good year when I get radishes I just harvest them down to where I am left with a plant about every square foot or so which leaves me a fairly thick growth of radish plants to collect pods from. After doing this for some years I realized that once a radish is to the point of seeding it doesn't really need much light or water etc. This got me to thinking of using the plants as a support system for other plants ie cucumber, squash, zucchini, peas, beans etc. Another handy thing about radishes going to seed is that they produce a prodigious amount of flowers and continue to do so through out the summer drawing pollinators for the secondary plants growing within them using them as support. I am always on the lookout for new combinations that work well together, anyone else have any combos that they use?
