Suggested Planting Requirements: Squash needs deep mounds of organic matter, rich soil, and heavy, consistent watering. All squash are extremely frost sensitive, so use plastic mulches to heat soils in early spring and row covers to protect from frost at both ends of the growing cycle, especially in short growing seasons. Avoid overhead watering to prevent powdery mildew. Summer Melody Mix can be planted in a 20” container if space is limited.
Growing Recommendations: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly once soils are at least 70°F. Row covers can be utilized for a pest barrier as birdies and bunnies love munching on squash. As with most cucurbits, mounding provides an optimal growing area.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when 4″-7″ to keep production high, and for best flavor. Fruit may be stored for several months.
