Hello, I live in eastern Tennessee and these dreary winter months have me planning my summer garden early! I have grown zucchini squash before, but never okra. I have been reading up on companion planting, and I have come across some articles that say squash and okra don’t grow well together. My question is: if I plant both plants at opposite ends of my garden with other vegetables in between, will that be enough distance? I’ve also thought about putting the zucchini in pots, or skipping it altogether this year in favor of the okra. Any thoughts or advice? Thanks so much!
