Planting Vegetables Together

I am looking for tips on sister planting which is sometimes called Indian planting. Does the space between the rows of food produce less if the rows are closer together, and what other foods produce well when planted together in the same hole like corn, beans, and squash?

Corn, beans, and squash do well together. Beans will grow up on the corn.

Spinach and strawberries.

Tomatoes and peppers.

Onions are best grown by themselves, few plants get along with onions.

My understanding of the 3 Sisters planting style is to plant corn first. Once it is up 6 - 12 in., then plant the beans close by that will grow up the corn. The squash will help keep the soil cool.
