Interplanting


I took advantage of the small spaces between the garlic to interplant  lettuce. The lettuce grew amazingly fast and I do believe the garlic shaded the lettuce enough to keep it lasting longer in the garden. It will take until July when we harvest the garlic to see what effects the lettuce may have had on garlic size. Interplanting really cut back on weeding and overall, I am impressed with the results.
