|Summer Squash Seed Planting
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.
