    Does anyone know if planting garlic in my bed with the green beans and corn will keep bugs off of the plants? I noticed yesterday that the onions I had planted had a very strong odor, almost enough to repel me! So I was just wondering about the garlic. I have heard of some garlic sprays that are suppossed to work.

    yes, it will work, for a short distance. you might have to alternate every other row to get good coverage.
