Companion Planting

I came across an article from Mother Earth News on companion planting today. The idea seems to be instead of planting things to "drive away" certain insects, plant items that attract birds and other insects that will eat the problem pests. I'm planning to plant cream peas and okra this summer so I'm thinking I'll plant some sunflowers with them and see how things work out.
