Summer Squash Seed Planting Information:

Summer Squash need warm weather to grow. The plants produce squash in 50 to 65 days, so there is no point of planting them indoors. It is best to plant seeds directly in the garden. Plant your seeds after the soil has warmed up. Thin so there are 4 plants per hill. Summer Squash produces abundantly, so there is no need to plant successive plantings. Eight plants will provide more than enough for a large family. You can trellis squash to save space. Plants grow 2 ft tall and vines spread up to 10 ft.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile slightly acid soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant. Add well composted manure.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water well during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.

Harvest Tips:

Protect ripening summer squash from damp ground by placing them on boards. Cut summer squash carefully from plants to prevent damaging the vines.


ZYMV – Zucchini Yellow Mosaic Virus

Type: Virus - Potyvirus

Zucchini Yellow Mosaic Virus is a world-wide virus disease that affects the growth of cantaloupes & melons, cucumbers, gourds, pumpkins, squash, and watermelons. Symptoms include stunted or dwarfed plants, mottling, yellowing, distortion, blistering, and wrinkling of the leaves, and reduced growth rate and yields. The virus can cause total crop lose. The symptoms on leaves known as "shoestring" effect causes young leaves to appear narrow, and fern-like appearance of the leaves. The virus causes cucumbers to become bumpy and oddly shaped, and have a bitter taste. Cantaloupes & melons and watermelons are malformed and often develop deep cracks. Squash and pumpkins can develop knobby areas. Plants infected with the virus have little or no marketable fruit. The virus can reduce yields and fruit quality. It is spread by aphids and seeds. The infected plants should be removed to avoid further infestation. Plan on using a 3 year crop rotation and avoid planting in the same location, year after year. Keep the fields weed free. Proper tillage practices may be helpful in managing the disease. Insecticides for aphids are of limited value to control the disease. Using transparent or silver plastic mulches have been shown to repel aphids and delay the virus from spreading. Ladybird beetles can be effective at naturally controlling aphid populations. The best option is to use disease resistant varieties.
