By mid-summer, most gardeners are blessed with the problem of too much summer squash! These bushy plants are found in every garden, often volunteering to guard the compost pile with large spreading leaves. Summer squash are the same species as many winter squash but they are eaten at the immature stage, when the skin is still very delicate & tender. A farming trick to keep up a regular harvest and reduce disease pressure is to plant successions 3-4 weeks apart in different locations and pull out older plants mercilessly after 4-5 weeks of harvest. Otherwise they can become hosts to mildew, squash bugs, and vine borers. Nutrients: vitamins A, B6, C, E, K, folate, riboflavin and manganese. (2 Gram Packet)
