Outside, plant lettuce and potatoes early May, then zucchini and cucumbers at the end of May. If you do not follow their natural rhythm, the vegetable garden will tend to degrade.

Do not combine good plants

Plants join together to protect themselves. Some species go very well together, this is the principle of companionship. For example, beets work well with celery, lettuce, onions, and radishes, but you have to keep them away from carrots and beans at all costs.
