Intercropping Magnifies Yields

This spring, I transplanted some volunteer scallions right between my cauliflower seedlings very early in March, a gamble for cool weather crops to go in so early.

Much to my delight, I am thrilled that the blooming alliums keep the bugs off the cauliflower plants and we have gorgeous green onions for our very first share this CSA Season!

Intercropping is a type of pest management that naturally balances pests and beneficial insects or manages nutrition in the soil.

It is wonderful to experience this companion planting success so early this season!
