Days to Germination:
Days to Maturity:
Sow Heirloom Early Prolific Straightneck Squash seeds roughly 3' apart in rows.
Best Container Size:
After all danger of frost, in a sunny location, sow a few seeds spaced evenly over a hill 9-12 inches tall and 2' across. When the plants are 3" tall, thin by cutting all but the three strongest seedlings per hill. To avoid weeding, mulch heavily around plants and in the rows.
Pick summer squash early and often! Not picking will stop the production of the plants. Ready to harvest just after blossom falls from fruit and fruit can be easily dented with a thumbnail.
