SUMMER SQUASH

Summer squash (Cucurbita pepo), including zucchini, crookneck, straightneck, patty pan and other similar types, is common in  vegetable gardens. You can eat squash fruits cooked, raw and shredded or grated in baked goods. Squash flowers are edible, as well.

Like other “vine crops,” summer squash plants grow best and produce the most fruit in warm weather. Some varieties form long vines. Others are bush types that fit more easily into a small garden

Direct seeding is preferred for starting squash.

Squash seeds will not germinate in cold soil. Plants started indoors and set out into cold soil will also not grow very well. Squash plants started indoors also fail to grow in the garden because of damage during transplanting.

Use a soil thermometer and sow seeds after the last frost date, once soil temperatures are at least 70° F at the two-inch depth.
