Organic gardening gurus preach the benefits of companion planting.

What is companion planting?

Some plants help one another when they’re planted together. They may just grow faster, bigger, and stronger together. Or one plant might repel bugs that would harm the other plant.

One of the plants that has bug repelling power is the marigold.

So I put a marigold plant in the space between each of our tomato plants.

I don’t know if it will chase the bugs away, but at least it’ll make our garden a bit nicer to look at.
