This spring I had planted some onion sets and then decided to stick in some heirloom pea seeds I'd saved from last year. I'm finding its a wonderful combo. The onions are growing nice and big and the peas are using the onion stems to vine around keeping them upright. Has anyone ever tried this before? I have so many pea pods coming on now...I can't wait for the few more days till I'm eating fresh peas!

Here is a picture of the peas & onions together. Believe it or not there are also 2 tomato plants and 2 zucchini plants in there as well as some beets. All are thriving so far.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
