This is part of the 'no dig' pumpkin patch. I have planted corn near each group of pumpkins. I know from experience that it is hard to tell where to direct the water, once the pumpkin vines begin running together. This way I will just water at the base of the corn.
Corn and pumpkin are also good companion plants.
I may even plant some beans to grow up the corn once it is a little larger. I have planted a lot of pumpkins because they keep so well over the winter.
The two 'early variety' tomato seedlings I bought are living up to their name and both have good sized fruit on them already.
My home grown tomato seedlings are doing well too and are using the macrame trellis confidently.
Strange things are happening with the zucchini this year...both here and at my sister's. We are used to having a run of male flowers before the female ones bloom. This year the girls are out early and we both have zucchini happening. We reckon it is the wonderful rain we have had.
And to top it all off, the beans are beaning.
If all this isn't bliss,
I don't know what is.
