French Method Mixing seeds before Planting

scarletdaisies(6)September 25, 2009

I was reading up on French methods of potagers and found they mix seeds before planting. They also plant very close together. Does anyone have any ideas of what seeds can be mixed during planting?

This give an example and does say in the first paragraph or two they crowd them.

I don't see any mixed seed rows, but I didn't read over them that well.
