Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Provide squash plants with deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy, even water. All squash are extremely frost sensitive, so use mulch to heat soils in early spring and row covers to protect from frost at both ends of the growing cycle, especially in short growing seasons.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70°F. Use row covers to provide a physical barrier to insects.

Harvesting & Storage: Pick squash when they are 4"-7" long to keep production high, and for best flavor.
