Interesting about the radishes. I am doing that this year, but not so much on purpose!
I intersperse my veggies with herbs, marigolds and other flowers, in both warm and cool colors. I also plant onions, garlic and hot peppers all around the garden. This year the thing that seems to be attracting bees like crazy is sunflowers. I have a 4 x 7 block of full-sized sunflowers, plus two smaller blocks of ornamental sunflowers which are pulling in tons of huge, fuzzy bees.
I've never had big problems with pests with this strategy. This year my garden plot is nearly 400 square feet--much bigger than I am used to--so I was anticipating bigger pest challenges, but it hasn't happened. Not yet at least!
