Mix Veg with Herbs

Chef-style mixed plantings of herbs and veggies make the most of garden or container space and save time as well. The varying heights and leaf textures also make for a more attractive planting. Grow the following, - with similar soil and water needs and complimentary flavors - together, for a great start to a variety of Mexican and Italian dishes: Tomatoes, Basil, Cilantro, Sweet Bell Peppers, Chili Peppers and Parsley. Round out the ingredient choices by growing a combo of Okra, Thyme, Oregano and Rosemary in a drier garden spot.
