- Squash, especially zucchini, are very prolific producers!
- Easy to grow, each plant will produce several squash a day during peak season.
- Make sure you harvest summer squash when tender and still immature!
- To germinate outside, use a cloche, row cover, or frame protection in cold climates for the first few weeks.
- Plant seeds about 1-inch deep and 2 to 3 feet apart in a traditional garden bed.
- Alternatively, plant as a “hill” of 3 or 4 seeds sown close together on a small mound; this is helpful in northern climates, as the soil is warmer off the ground. Allow 5 to 6 feet between hills.
