I am trying an experiment this year. Where I have spaces in my garlic beds I am planting butternut squash now. The hope is that it will not take over before the garlic is harvested in early July. That way I can use the garlic bed for two purposes but with a crop that I know will be ready for harvest BEFORE the garlic goes in again in October. The only flaw in this plan is that the garlic beds are OUTSIDE of the fence. So let's hope the deer don't take a fancy to squash blossoms.
