Tips By Limitless Growth to Growing Squash Successfully
Squash is one of the most amazing crops to have in your garden. They climb up a trellis so make use of vertical space more than most. Squash arches can be one of the most beautiful structures you can have in your garden! The production per square foot is almost unparalleled and the variety of uses for your harvest is incredible!
Squash has many different uses and when we refer to squash we’re talking spaghetti squash, acorn squash, butternut, and more! Spaghetti squash has a striking resemblance to your favourite dinner time staple but is actually healthy. Butternut makes some of the best soup you could imagine (have you ever had butternut coconut curry soup?… AMAZING!). Acorn is just straight-up delicious when roasted.
Our biggest tip is to make use of the vertical space. These babies will climb, so make sure you let them. If you don’t then they may get attacked by rodents and the yield will be much lower. You’ll also be wasting some valuable ground space. When it comes to trellis plants you want to make sure it’s not shading out another crop. We’re planning on building a trellis arch on the side of our house this year!
