Dandelions are another good plant to have in your tomato patch believe it or not. Tomatoes are susceptible to fusarium wilt, which is a soil borne fungal disease and dandelions can help keep this in check.Plant tomatoes along side of radishes, spinach, lettuce and turnips to help shade them from the hot sun.

Some sources will contend that planting cabbage with tomatoes will hinder the growth of the tomatoes. Most gardening requires some trial and error to figure out what works best for your environment.
