Sow indoors in 2” pots with good potting soil May to mid-June. Transplant into the garden 1-2 weeks after sprouting to 2-3’ centers and 6 ft wide rows. May also be direct sown when soil is warm. Squash plants are frost-sensitive and benefit from row cover to protect them from insects and frost while plants are young.
To save seed, scoop out seeds when you eat the fruit. Rinse off and dry. Isolate from other squash of the same species by at least ½ mile
