Looking through the listings I saw potatoes, radishes and nasturtiums linked with squash. My German neighbor used to talk about bohnenkraut (bean herb) to plant with beans. I can't remember if that was for growth or for seasoning the cooked beans. I think that it was summer or winter savory I don't know which.Any information on the bean/ beanherb combo
