Squashes like pumpkin would do good as a border in the sun planting but so would watermelon or any of the melons for that matter. If you don't mind climbers getting up into the elderberries then even a loofa would work.

I think it looks much tidier than the tall grass at the bush edge. My bushes are now in full bloom, they smell yummy! I made a cordial a couple days ago that turned out well. I'm looking forward to harvesting a large amount of berries this year. My question today is when do I harvest the berries to beat the birds?
Here is how the fruit looked last year when I first harvested a few panicles. There seemed to be too many green berries on the other panicles so I left them.
Here is what they looked like a couple of days later.
Do ya'll harvest early and just pick out the green berries?
