Caption: Companion planting of marigolds (Calendula sp.) with purple Swiss chard (Beta vulgaris). Companion planting is the practice of using certain crops to repel insect pests. Marigolds are believed to repel nematode worms that attack roots. This is an organic kitchen garden. Organic cultivation aims to reduce the use of artificial substances, such as chemical fertilizers and pesticides in the growing of food.
