What are you supposed to plant corn at least 20 feet away from tomatoes and celery?

I do not know, but I assume they are antagonistic to each other somehow. That said, you will cover your bases simply by having them in separate boxes. Another check to the plus side for SFG.

I had all 3 in the same 4x8 box last year and they all grew fine. The celery never tasted good but that was becuase I did not know about blanching it.

Very Happy Thanks guys,

I had planned it in seperate boxes but the boxes are all attached so I didn't know if it was something in the roots or something in the air, or bugs or what. I think I feel comfortable enough to plant them where I had planned now.

I do not see anything obvious about celery from the companion planting page where I assume you picked up this quote BUT if you scroll down and read about tomatoes, the paragraph tells you that corn and tomatoes are attacked by the same worm. My guess is you make the environment far too worm friendly by planting these close together.

Love the pic of your children!

Thank you!

I just think its weird how they say to keep them at least 20 feet away from eachother. It's the only one that they give a specific distance for then they don't go into much detail. I have never had a big pest problem so I think I will chance it, what would you do?

I finally have enough room to grow corn (Casually said to Ray, if I had more garden space I would grow corn. The next day he bought the wood and fillers....this year I will be growing corn). Last time I had a corn patch was in a dirt garden that we no longer have. It is by accident that my corn, tomatoes and celery will be at least 20 feet away. I will be waiting to hear how yours does.
