Post  milaneyjane 4/28/2011, 11:31 am

I was thinking of making a living grid in one of my boxes this year. I don't keep the grids on after I plant but I thought I would try planting green onions and carrots as the grid line of my boxes to make a plant grid. I figure it will give a little more growing space and look interesting. What do you think?

I'm trying carrots this year for the first time. Some are trying radishes because they sprout so fast. I think it was Kay who said the other day that she's putting an onion at each grid intersection. I think that will look cute.

Sure it will work! I've done part of my box in radishes. I just harvested them, so I have to replant. Just make sure to check a companion planting guide to be sure the plants in your squares will do well with the plants in your grid.

Here is a good Companion planting guide: http://www.ghorganics.com/page2.html#ALFALFA:

Pay special attention to the onions.

Yep, onions at the grid intersections except on the pepper areas. It all started because after I planted my two onion squares, I had just a handfull of transplants left. Somebody on the forum said onions are good bug repellant. The only places I had left to plant was at the intersections. And it does look kinda cool to see this tall spikey thing popped up over the spinach, bok choy, lettuce, and other greens.

Ok... so it's not the best picture, but it gives an idea. I still have my string grid setup until the radishes get a bit bigger. The radishes still needed a little thinning when I took this picture.

Do we just replant radishes as we harvest them? Who could eat hundreds of radishes in a two week period before they go pithy? (Not telling anyone what to do, partial joke, partial legit question.)

Personally, I would use carrots or onions since they hold over better.

AHA! a combination of the two is the answer! (which is not an original idea!)

I can hear me now......radish, carrot, radish, carrot, radish, carrot.....I would most certainly be hauled off to the funny farm.

My neighbors would yell, "Hey, honey, come look. That nutjob is in the garden talking to himself again! Grab the camera....we may need evidence."

We don't eat radishes, but I will be planting more soon, they are so far to date, working as great bug deterrents for the squash.... Goats get the tops, neighbors get a few rasishes, rest get made into compost.
