I would say adjacent squares.

Sorry to nit pick, but adjacent = sharing a common side? Is kitty corner okay? Wouldn't you know it - I have broccoli and cauliflower among my tomatoes and Mother Earth News tells me everything in the cabbage family dislikes tomatoes .

I agree with Wild Bill. I define companion planting as adjacent squares - as in a square of basil next to the square of tomatoes next to the square of carrots. I would keep things that don't play well together at least a few squares apart if possible.

Someone on another thread suggested planting onions toward the front of squares where winter squash are planted (as they are companions) and that they wouldn't take up enough room to jeopardize the squash plants. Do you agree?

I would agree that might be an option.

Companion planting at a glance, though the site originates in the UK, it's an interesting read: http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/57vJt3/www.the-gardeners-calendar.co.uk/Companion_Planting/companiontables.asp/r:f
