According to the companion planting chart I use most,

Onion Family 	Likes Beets, Carrot, Lettuce, Cabbage Family, Summer Savory 	
                Dislikes Beans, English Peas

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!
