I'll still leave the corn and quinoa seeds out, and just plant them at the back separately. But I think I can still get the polyculture effect by broadcasting separately. When I plant the 'late spring' seeds, the first sown shouldn't be so big they'll shade out the others.
OR! I can split the area into two parts. In one I'll do early spring and then late spring sowings, and in the other I'll broadcast them all together. That way I'll know if one works better than the other, and can use that system next year! That seems reasonable.

We've gotta get close enough to that helmet to pull the choke on it's engine and flood his mind! Or, we could just read this tiny ad:
