As I was planting the garden in March I noticed that it was a little difficult for me to not plant the seedlings in a row, it may seem like a insignificant detail but this symptomatic of ingrained learned behaviour about farming that will be difficult to break. I still enjoyed experimenting with companion planting research I hadn't yet gotten around transposing the info in a format where it is more easily accessible.
I've been postponing this for a while but I've met someone today that has been experimenting with combination planting not knowing that there are resources out there to make it easier and better without having to do all the testing. So I feel motivated to finish transposing the large pdf into an excel sheet people could manipulate and add information to. I feel now that I can now continue working on it and ask the community to participate in collating information and notes about the different combinations. Watch this space :)
