The new Olde Thyme Food garden

A Market Garden & Greenhouse

I do a lot of companion planting in the potager… lots of calendula and alyssum.

At Olde thyme, I use and teach organic, no-dig/no-till gardening, polyculture practices.

Meaning that everything is grown together, a great big hodge-podge planting of edibles and ornamentals blended together. Planting great diversity, a blend of plants, makes for healthy, thriving gardens that produce better and look great.

The flowers and herbs attract beneficial insects and pollinators to keep the garden virtually pest free, improve soil quality, and make everything taste and grow better. Is the greatest form of companion planting, both pretty and productive all at the same time.
