I have never heard of it, but, I see the logic in it. However could be a nightmare of physically getting in between the rows to pick the corn. If you do that, post your results at the end of the summer or in the fall.

FYI, corn is a heavy feeder and likes fertilizer (IE...10-10-10). If you have pumpkins growing too early in your rows, then you will not be able to get your fertilizer in the ground without hurting the pumpkin vines/ runners...

We have such a small gardening area we cant. But I do throw out our jack o laterns back there every year and grow several regular pumpkins that way. Grew some white ones last year

Later on today I am going to start tomatoes, peppers and a few other vegetables in milk jugs - should the weather turn bad again, they can stay out in the snow. That is according to a blog post I read - I am trying it for the first time this year

For this area (Perry Hall, Maryland), my grandfather, who will be 94 this year was a farmer all his life, as well was his father and his grandfather and so on, has taught me to never put anything in the ground around here (like tomatoes, squash, corn, (summer plants), etc...) untill after the first week of May.

He always said that even though we may get those really warm days, old man winter may yet blow his last gasp at the end of April. And look, Lord behold... he was right on the money; its cold, damp, rainy and just nasty out right now. As a matter of fact, i'm going to put a fire in the fireplace tonight.

But, I must admit, by this weekend, Ill have the garden tilled and after the first week of May, there will be tomato plants planted in the ground.

The garden was officially tilled and planted, just before this spring rain we are receving started to fall. This year i'm planning to build a raised strawberry bed as well.

I built a raised herb garden last year right next to my vegetable garden and it did really well; that rabbits loved it as well.....
