Hey everybody!! Firstly, we love you all and really value forums like this. Thanks so much <3

Alrighty... We've built an 8'x16' greenhouse with an aquaponics system. Seeds have been ordered and I'm looking for some input on how to interplant them. The ability for climbing vines is ample. The system is in an L-shape, making one end a bit wetter than the other. There's also pallets set up for herbs and an L-shaped soil-less mix plot under the perilite filled aquaponic bed.

Seeds we have to be planted within the four walls:
Pole Beans (Kentucky Wonder)
Tomatoes (granny cantrell, moneymaker, amish paste, and cherry)
Spinach (Amsterdam, Prickly Seeded)
Pepper (Bullnose, Como di Toro Rosso)
Cucumber (Tendergreen Burpless)

Others involved in this project have much more gardening experience than I (this is only my second garden!! :: ), but input from the whole gardening community (especially when it comes to such revolutionary styles such as aquaponics and absence of soil and companion planting) is so appreciated!!!

Would the pole beans like climbing the tomato plants, as they do with corn?
This is awkward. I've grown a second evil head. I'm going to need a machete and a tiny ad ...
