what to intercrop with squash?
I've planted up 5 or 6 squash plants in a 2x1m raised bed. They're still little plants as yet, which leaves quite a lot of soil bare!
What could I intercrop with them? Would beetroot / carrots be quick enough, or would they get shaded out? Just wondering as the carrots and beet I've sown so far this year are stubbornly not doing much , despite making repeat sowings etc.
I've a salad bed elsewhere and I'm not planning on a '3 sisters' crop tho might stick some beans in there, depending on how many of the current ones the slugs get...
