will bush beans and squash be ok together?

Will bush beans do alright planted with squash, or will the squash cover them up too much? Also, I'm wondering if it would be hard to find the beans under the squash. I want to put corn, squash and beans together. But I don't want pole beans, since they pulled down my corn stalks last year, and it was a big mess.

Plant the bush beans on the outer edge of your corn. That should grant them the sun and ease of harvest. If your corn block is large enough you could train the stalks so not shadowing your beans. You might also look at tallers bush varieties.
