I'm looking for suggestions for vegetables to plant next to a patch of chamomile. Any ideas?

Perennial "Roman Chamomile" (Chamaemelum nobile) gets along well with (and can even hold its' own with) different mints (including lemon balm, bee balm, hyssop, germander, horehound) and I let the annual "German Chamomile" (Matricaria recutita) type self-seed around my beds along with buckwheat, daikon radish, and red russian kale.

Potatoes and onions, together. The chamomile is a good smelly herb, the potatoes create a canopy, and the onions emerge from the canopy, as well as being stinky.

I would plant the plants from the cabbage family, like cabbage, kale, broccoli, etc.
