    I have some questions about intercropping...
    Does anyone have info on intercropping? What are good intercropping plants?
    Can you interplant corn and cowpeas? And does anyonn do it?

    howdy fellow tennessean. cowpeas make excellent companions for corn. certain cowpeas will vine if given the chance: purplehull, rouge d'noir, cardinal are good ones. bush beans with tomatoes is a good combo as well as tomatoes and basil. beans and squash, summer and winter types work really well.
