I've got the bulk of the squash out now. This year's growlist:

Moschata
Lofthouse
Marina di chioggia
Futsu Black
[span style="font-size:13.3333px;"]Autumn Crown[/span]

Maxima
Winter Sweet
Blue Ballet

Pepo
Zeppelin delicata
Lofthouse krookneck
Defender zucchini
Piccolo zucchini
Jack-be-little
Hooligan

I planned space for 16 plants in the 2 raised beds and planted sufficient for throwaways in case of poor germination/poor growth. Naturally everything has done wonderfully and I'm now finding spaces to hide squash plants about the place as I feel guilty about the waste! The small square of sweetcorn I put in has become a "two-sisters" bed and I'm making noises about how ornamental some varieties are with an eye on the ornamental borders.

I'm planning to interplant the squash in the main beds with tomatillos and borage. Not sure how that will go but it feels like it'll look interesting and attract bees. We'll see.
