Squash needs to be sowed in soil that is over 56 degrees or the seeds will not germinate. We planted three strains of squash this season, Yellow Crooked Neck, Butternut, and Yellow Summer. Transplant two weeks after the last frost, and plant about a meter apart to allow for huge growth. Water daily, making sure to water up to 2 gallons per plant per week, and keep the area well mulched. Begin harvesting your Summer and Yellow Crooked Neck squash in July and continue picking regularly until the first frost, this will encourage maximum production. Butternut Squash will continue producing throughout the fall until the first snow.
