Found this awesome web site for companion planting from North Dakota State University. Really cool, thought I would share.

I did plant radishes with my summer squash. I thought I read it here somewhere on the forum to deter pests.

Wow! thanks so much for posting this. I just read last month in the Grit magazine about companion planting and this chart is just what I was looking for to tell me what to plant with what. I've done pretty well except I did plant onions near some things that I guess I shouldn't have. Oh well, live and learn!

As regards planting radishes with melons and squashes......I planted some around my melons and squash plants in my community garden rows in 2010. I can attest that I had no bug problem that year. I just left the radishes to grow and grow. They grew huge, ugly, thick, discolored and inedible, but they may have been what kept my melons pest free that year.

Watermelon on Sept 1, 2010.

This year my few squash and melon plants were lost to insects and probably too much shade. I planted them in a different community garden area without radishes. Except for a few zucchinis, the rest succumbed early. I really think radishes might have helped.
You can be sure I'll sow radish seeds with my squashes next year.

Oh, I LOVE that website. It's very thorough. Here's another one: http://landshareco.org/growing-ideas/companion-plants/. Mostly repetition of what you've posted but it has a "sort" feature which is kinda nice.
