Trailing squash or pumpkins can take up a lot of ground space, so I try to combine them with another crop (poly-cropping), generally something like corn or climbing beans that take little ground space but grow high. If they do start romping up your beans they are easily led down on the ground. I suggest having pumpkins grow down the centre of a wide tunnel bed between a row of cordon beans on one side and cucumbers on the other. Outdoors they can be combined with a vigorous kale. Squash plants can be planted out in June to be well established before the kale is planted out (well into August ) from modules, around the long stems of the squash. It seems a happy mix; once fruit are harvested and the first frosts arrive, the leaves and stems of squash will die back and become ‘mulch’ beneath the kale
