I read a book The Complete Guide to Self Sufficiency by John Seymour. This fellow lived off his garden completely. His suggestion was to alternate rows of carrots with rows of onions. Something smelly in the carrot drives off "onion flies" and the onion smell drives off carrot flies.

I have not actually done this though as my garden is already down now and I will have to wait until next year to try it.
