Is there a certain set up for growing rows of different veggies that would be beneficial for the plants? Mainly to help keep bugs away. I have the basic veggies. tomatoes, eggplant, onions, broccoli, many herbs. Any ideas would be great.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by set up, babybird. I know lots of people like to include flowering plants to draw in pollinators and beneficial insects, but I"m not expert enough myself to tell you which are best or where they should be in relation to other plants.

I'm also not exactly sure what you're looking for but perhaps this site will help:

If that's not what you need, you could try running a search on companion planting.

I heard something about planting a certain veg next to a different veg it will help keep a certain pest away. For example-- carrot next to onion (this IS only an example). It's probably not a big deal where I place them, I was just trying to do my veg garden as organic as possible. It's my first large vegetable garden and I'm hoping to get alot of fruits and veggies so I can try canning them at harvest time. Thanks for responding evry1!!

There was an article today on the home page written by Sharon Brown that is about companion planting, I learned some things I didn't know and remembered things that were on the "compost" pile of my brain. (LOL)
Seriously, her article has a lot of information to use as a starting point.
