companion planting

I have been very interested in companion planting these last few years. like the three sisters: corn, beans and squash.
The corn supports the beans physically, the beans fix nitrogen and the squash is a mulch/cover for the two other plants.

companion planting.

Roses love garlic and Carrots love Tomatoes by Loise Riotte are good books on this topic.
