How to Grow
Squash are a hot weather crop. As such, the need full sun and warm, deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Directly plant seed outdoors from late May to mid June 1" deep in hills 8' apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. Squash do not transplant well - use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil. Protect mature squash from frost and cold.
