Marigolds and Vegetables: experiment update!

Marigolds in the Vegetable Garden: experiment update after six weeks!
Last month, over at Live Creatively Inspired, I shared the start of our garden experiment: adding marigolds to our vegetable garden perimeter, with the hope they would repel bad pests and rodents, while encouraging beneficial insects like bees for better pollination.
And now it’s time for an update!
Marigolds and Pumpkins: newly planted and six weeks later!

In summary? So far, so good!

It’s only been six weeks, but in addition to the obvious pretty color they add to the garden, the flowers seem to be helping. Time will tell and there’s no guarantees, so expect more updates from me as the Summer rolls along!
