Notes:
Tomatoes and all members of the brassicas family repel each other and will exhibit poor growth when planted together.

Lettuce and kohlrabi are good together because the lettuce will be harvested by the time the kohlrabi needs all the space in the row

Beans and onions are natural enemies, so keep them at opposite sides of the garden

The roots of French Brocade Marigolds emit a substance that repels nematodes in the immediate area.

Marigolds when grown with just about any garden plant, repelling beetles, nematodes, and even animal pests

Mints (including hyssop, sage, and various "balms") repel slugs, a bane of lettuce and cabbages

Tomatoes grow better with carrots, but may stunt the carrots' growth.
Beans (which are bad for tomatoes) provide the nitrogen carrots need more than some other vegetables.
The reason why most people say do not plant corn by tomatoes is that they are both eaten by the same bugs. , because if one crop becomes infested you will lose both crops if they are close to each other.

Planting tomatoes and potatoes together makes potatoes more susceptible to potato blight.
Kohlrabi & Fennel both, inhibits the growth of tomatoes.

Aromatic companion plants repel carrot fly. Sage, rosemary, and radishes are recommended by some as companion plants, but listed by others as incompatible.
alliums inter planted with carrots confuse onion and carrot flies. For the beneficial insect-attracting properties of carrots to work, they need to be allowed to flower; Otherwise, use the wild carrot, Queen Anne's Lace, for the same effect. Flax produces an oil that may protect root vegetables like carrots from some pests.

The growth of beans and peas is stunted by garlic and onions.

Carrots, dill, parsley, and parsnip attract garden heroes -- praying mantises, ladybugs, and spiders -- that dine on insect pests

Rosemary repels cabbage flies, geraniums trap cabbage worms, same general companion profile as all brassica (cabbage, kolhrabi, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, etc)
Flea Beetles are warded off by radishes.

Although cabbage and cauliflower are closely related, they don't like each other at all.

Basil planted among tomatoes protect the tomatoes from horn worms, and sage scattered about the cabbage patch reduces injury from cabbage moths.

catnip, help to repel aphids and cabbage pests.

Nasturtiums are so favored by aphids that the devastating insects will flock to them instead of other plants. A strong blast of water is usually enough to get rid of the aphids. They can also be prone to flea beetles, slugs and the caterpillars of cabbage white butterflies.
Great kinks to learn more,

Oh, this is sooo helpful. I always love a concise listing of compatibility. So thank you :) I'm interested in trying biodynamic faming in my garden. Have you attempted this?
