Oh, that's right. I remember now that you sent that picture. It was a great picture. Thanks so much!

I posted a photo recently, showing tomatoes, corn, squash, eggplant all growing w my iris.
To my knowledge there has been no problem in my yard.  I don't have the luxury of having separate beds on this post stamp yard.
I also have no weed problem.
 Every sq. Inch of soil that shows has something growing in it I want.  No room for weeds.

Subject: [iris-photos] Iris beds

I would like to plant irises temporarily in a spot that I would like
to use later to plant vegetables. I know that the rhizomes are 
poisonous but wondered if there would be any implications of pulling 
out irises next Spring and then a couple of weeks later, plant 
vegetables. I have veggies there now, but would like to borrow the 
space. Does anyone have any info on this subject? I appreciate any
