Based on the seeds I bought and some feedback I got a while ago, I redesigned the layout of the garden.

I think I’ve mostly addressed the previous issue of the trellises blocking the sun.  In reality, the long bed is centered to the two 4X8 beds. I just moved it over to the right in the drawing so I could fit the tomatoes better. The one thing I’m not sure about is the growing habit of the cantaloupe and watermelon.  Do they fill in thick?  Should I move the acorn squash somewhere else?  I can move the scallions over to the two empty spaces in the first full bed and slide the onions around to put the two acorn squash plants in the uppermost part of the second bed.  What do you think?  And if all is well as is, I’ve ended up with extra space…..what should I put in those spots?
