Now THIS is what a polyculture garden looks like! Look at how healthy everything is!
The onions interplanted sporadically keep away a number of pests
Nothing is concentrated enough to attract a plague of specialised agricultural pests 
The loss of one crop to disease or pests is not catastrophic (so the system is resilient) 
There is always something blooming for the bees
Say no to monoculture!
