Interplanting

This year we are having better luck with our cucumbers.  We made 4 mounds and planted the seedlings on the top of each mound, hoping the mound will retain more moisture.  Since there was a clear space between the mounds I was able to squeeze in some onions in the cross between the mounds.  I have read that onions keep pests away, so between the onions and the mounds we are determined to finally have a decent cucumber crop this year.  We have also mulched with sea grass to suppress weeds and retain moisture.  All seems to be going well so far.
