Quick question. In my garden design I was planning on planting tomatoes north of the corn bed. How many feet north of the corn would you plant tomatoes (vining tomatoes) in order to keep the corn from shading the tomatoes. I live in East TX, if that helps.

Unless tomatoes would appreciate a bit of shade in E. Texas, I would guess a safe distance would be as tall as you expect the corn to grow - 6' maybe? Why not put the corn at the northernmost spot??
