I understand that shallots and beans are not compatible. But does that mean I should not plant beans where I pulled shallots? French Style, Wax and Italian green beans. Zone 6

No, you can plant after, or before. This will only apply to actively growing plants. They are not compatible at the root zone, meaning they compete, chemically. Planting after will be a good way to restore nitrogen to the soil, as well as break up some of that deeper soil.
