Corn and potatoes companion planting was quite successful. The kale and collard greens did ok too.

The only thing tricky about corn/potatoes is the corn needs full sun as a seedling. They cant be planted at the same time unless they are about 3 feet apart or maybe just 2 ft apart if corn transplants are used. Potatoes do thrive in the dappled shade of the corn plants. I pulled more than a pound per sq ft of bed here despite being surrounded by corn.

Most companion planting is tricky and doesnt impove yields but this one I may try again.
