Sunflowers as buffer plants

IMG_7912Here’s a shot of all 14 caged positions with sunflowers in bloom.  There are a lot of bees now and it looks like the tomatoes have a lot of flowers.  As mentioned before these sunflowers drink a lot of water and they don’t seem to make for good companion plants.  The habeneros shared with sunflowers are probably not going to produce anything.  Out of 12 habeneros planted I might see 4 plants produce anything.  Next year sunflowers will not be used as companion plants and will have to have their own container.
