cheryl, Try the book "Square Foot Gardening" by Mel Bartholomew. The website is . The book contains much companion panting information and high yield/low maintenance. small area planting technique. We reduced the size of our garden for next year by 40% (My control study crops this season produced a yield increase of 250% using the technique as compared to my traditional rows)

Carrots love Tomatoes is also a very good book on companion planting. I found it at a yard sale but you could probably get it at your library and I believe CS magazine sells it too. I highly recomment it.

cheryl, I had some additional material before my harddrive crashed, but was not able to email it to you. The server said your email address is invalid. I will try to retrieve what I can from the platters and post it here. Should your address have spaces in it?
