I just planted the 4 above in seed trays.  The kale and beans have just started popping up.
Anyway, I have two small yards to use.  One has a huge mango tree that shades the entire yard, the other is sunny.  How should I plant them?  I'm wondering if there's an ideal way to plant these (which ones next to each other)?  Or if it doesn't matter.  It'll all be planted in the ground in rows because I have pretty good soil and don't feel I need to buy any for raised beds.

Kale and peas will both do better in cooler conditions ( if you've got mango trees I'm guessing that means afternoon shade would be best) while the beans like heat the most of those 4 and beets also seem to do well in full sun.

They should all generally get along together but the beans and beets will enjoy warmer/drier conditions than the peas and kale, so that suggests a natural 2-2 split
We can walk to school together. And we can both read this tiny ad:
