Can't find the Website I used to consult. Any suggestions?
Specifically, I want to plant some corn in the same bed as existing
strawberries (Yes, plenty of room).
OK, or contra-indicated?
I must have used the wrong search terms earlier; this time I found a
whole bunch of Web sites.
Did not find any contra-indications for corn + strawberries. nor any
I only asked because I had room in that patch.
May go ahead anyway and also plant beans, which are known to work well
Should be an interesting menage!
are they everbearing strawberries?
planted sparsely they will do better or if you
can put them on the north sideish.
my contra-indication is that both are heavy
feeders and that corn likes it a bit dryer than
strawberries. also if they are everbearing
strawberries then that reduces or eliminates the
third+ crops until the corn dies back enough
to let more light in (if heavily interplanted).
beans will help quite a bit for the strawberries.
trim some of the leaves off once in a while and
use that for green manure in the patch. the worms
and plants love it. climbing beans (pinto, or
pole beans of various kinds) will use the corn for
support. plant the beans a while after the corn
it needs a head start.
