jumbled plants at end of season

This jumble of plants all grew out of one hole I dug. In the center growing tall is a young Moringa tree. To the side is a zuccini that has served me well. Vining around it all are watermelons and sweet potato. There might be some peanuts in the jumble as well. I'm waiting for the watermelon stems to turn brown then I will pick them and then dig the sweet potato. There may also be some long beans in the mix as well. I have found here in the desert if I plant different seeds in one hole the plants do better because the help each other by shading and apparently repelling rabbits to some degree. I will clean it all up soon and only leave the Moringa which I hope will make it through the winter.
