My Butternut Squash plant has been putting on a spurt these last couple of days. It seems like it’s growing about 5 or 6cm a day! I have planted it just next to my sweetcorn (spaced out in a square) so that once the Squash gets big and rambling (as it certainly will) I can train the plant around the bases of the sweetcorn plants. Sweetcorn like to have their roots in shade apparently so this, two-thirds of the Three Sisters approach, will hopefully work well. I didn’t go for the full Three Sisters (Sweetcorn, Squash & Climbing Beans) because I just thought that the beans growing up the sweetcorn would look too messy. In a very Monica-esqe kind of way, I like my plot to be neat and tidy. Heck! I even decide which lettuce to pick based on how it will effect the overall look.
