Brussels Sprouts
Q.

Would Brussels Sprouts Be OK As A Companion Planting With Sweet Potatoes Since Both Seem To Require Minimal Watering?

My main garden will have peppers, tomatoes, eggplant and such and will most likely get watered every other day. I have read that sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts only require watering abot every 7 days.

As always, watering will depend, heavily, on the climate. If it is wet and rainy, or has rained then it will not be necessary to water at all! If it has been completely dry, then it is best to water once the soil is completely dry down to about 3 or 4 inches. This time period between watering will vary depending on temperature and humidity, well.

Now to the issue at hand- These two have no antagonistic properties towards each other, but have no beneficial relationship, either. It will be safe to assume that they will completely ignore each other, given the nature of each plant.
