[Market-farming] Do onions have friends?

I mistakenly planted onion sets next to my peas and noticed that the pea stand was diminished right next to the onions.  Coincidence?  Maybe or they could be living up to what the companion planting charts say.  That's what I get for forgetting to take my chart along when I planted!

What about the antagonism liliacae/legume?  Apparently, legume will
suffer from being close to onion and garlic.  Is there any truth to
this, or is it just folklore?

In any case, I am going to find out because I am planting peas near half
a bed of garlic. We'll see!
