Have you tried companion planting? I’m giving it a try for my garden this year with corn, Kentucky Wonder beans, and pumpkin (which is a type of squash).

Corn, beans, and squash are called “The Three Sisters.” Native Americans always interplanted this trio because they thrive together, much like three inseparable sisters.

The corn offers the beans support. The beans add nitrogen to the soil, which benefits all three plants. The sprawling, prickly squash leaves prevent weeds and help keep pests away.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac has more great info below for getting started!
