You can start by sowing the seeds in the vegetable garden in the spring, approximately in April. To plant the vegetable, choose the months of May - June. In your garden, squash will appreciate a very sunny exposure. They do not like the wind and always prefer a sheltered spot. However, they do not dislike humidity. They should be planted in deep, humus-rich soil.

As far as maintenance is concerned, between planting and harvesting, you should hoe and weed your soil frequently. Your squash will also appreciate mulching and regular but not excessive watering. As for the harvesting schedule of your vegetables, it will be done between two to four months after sowing.
