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.
Plant your garlic in with your roses and throw your banana skins in your rose bushes.
Beans: should be planted away from onions, garlic, shallots, and leeks.


Beets: Plant away from pole beans and mustards.

Broccoli: Avoid planting close to strawberries and sunflowers.

Cabbage: This group doesn't mix well with strawberries, sunflowers, and grapes.

Carrots: Keep away from dill.

Corn: Don't plant too close to tomatoes and sunflowers.

Eggplant: Keep away from potatoes, tomatoes and peppers.

Garlic: Avoid planting near beans and peas.

Lettuce: Avoid the cabbage family and sunflowers.

Onions: Do not plant near beans and peas.

Peas: Keep away from onions, garlic, shallots, and leeks.

Peppers: They don't mix well with eggplant, tomatoes, potatoes,and fennel.

Potatoes: Best if planted away from eggplant, peppers, tomatoes,squash, pumpkins and sunflowers.

Strawberries: Keep away from members of the cabbage family.

Tomatoes: They don't get along with corn, potatoes, peppers and eggplant.
