Carrotts Love Tomatoes

In reading again"Carrots Love Tomatoes"...the book....It says growing Cucumbers near Potatoes will increase all kinds of "wilt and Destruction" I have grown Cux for a while for pickling and am a Potato rookie. These guys are not side by side but rowend are 3 feet apart. I live in 5-6 St Louis MO area. I put my cux out REAL EARLY and have some fruit already...not ready to pick yet. Am I Near Doom or will it be ok???? Calm my fears please. Thanks Farmer Joe

Grmph!
My tomato killed my carrot! The tomato grew tall and bushy, blocking off light to the carrot. Murdering thing...

I'm growing my cukes along the okra and corn. Don't know if it will work but I'll find out soon enough.
Peace,
