Summer squash seeds are a full sun staple able to be sown directly after final spring frost but, for earliest starts, begin indoors 3-4 weeks prior. Plant 2-3 squash seeds 1\" deep per cell, 4-6\" apart in organic, moist, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.5-7.0.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWhether transplanting or sowing direct, plant summer squash seeds on 6-8” tall mounds of soil to accommodate heavy vegetation. Seeds germinate in 4-14 days, thinning out best starts and indoors transplants to 24-36\" apart per mound. Summer squash benefits from a top layer of mulch to help cool soil and roots. Fertilize after the first set of blooms appear and again during fruiting stage. Squash becomes starchy and less flavorful when 18-24” long.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eEarly Prolific Straightneck Summer Squash in the Vegetable Garden\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSummer squash boasts one of the most productive, reliable, and fastest growing crops available in the summer. Whether zucchini, crookneck, cousa, or Mexican squash, once these sun-loving squashes start fruiting, they’ll continue producing non-stop all the way until the frost. Summer squash thrives from frequent harvests and, if left unattended for even a day or two, is notorious for spitting out unexpected 18-24” monsters when you weren’t looking.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSquash seeds can be directly sown into the ground when temperatures are consistently warm. Squash needs over 3 feet of space and good ventilation for the fruit. Otherwise, there will be rotting and mildew. Squash will have a straight neck, and a buttery yellow color. Flesh of squash is smooth.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHarvesting Early Prolific Straightneck Summer Squash\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSummer squash is one of the fastest, most productive crops in the garden and, with frequent harvests, will continue to produce all the way until the frost. Most varieties are ready to harvest 50-60 days from sowing or ideally when 6-8” long. Summer squash will quickly reach a starchy and less flavorful 18-24” long if not harvested promptly. Using shears or a knife, carefully clip off fruits at the stem. Do not harvest young and tender squash by twisting or pulling.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSquash will be ready to harvest in 58 days, and you can harvest every couple of days.
