Contrary info here, but in general a comprehensive website.

All I can find is that it is a distant relative of beets. So I am going to guess it will grow well with onions and kolirobi as beets do.

Well, I have two buckets of Bright Lights. I guess the Yellow, Pink, White and Red have to be their own companions!

I bought a 4 pk. of them today and got 5 plants. I have 3 of them planted. I am planting where it use to be a driveway/parking place in front of the unused door of the garage so digging is slow. I have to get out as much gravel as possible then refill the hole with good dirt mixed with 2 yr. old bunny poo. I have 2 planted in with the last one but will dig their permanent holes maybe tomorrow after work.

Does anyone know if pole beans and tomatoes will grow together? I want to move my tomatoes to where the beans use to grown and the beans where the tomatoes use to be. I know there will be volunteer tomato plants and want to know if I will have to move them.

GOD bless and keep each of you.

Might they compete for sun? Tomatoes are real sun lovers.

I did think about that. There will also be some morning glory vines on that fence because they have been there for years and some seeds always fall. No matter which fence I put them on they will get some shade either from the west or south. Not a lot, but some. I have a couple places where the tomatoes would get full sun but they never seem to do well in them. It is frustrating to say the least. Our soil is heavy black clay that doesn't drain well and is hard as a rock when it gets dry. It is called black gumbo.

GOD bless and keep each of you.
