SUMMER SQUASH SEEDS

How to Plant Summer Squash Seeds
Direct sow when soil is at least 70°F., and weather has settled. Seeds will not germinate in cold soils. Sow 3 seeds per foot, cover about 1 inch in rows 3-4 feet apart. Thin to 1 foot apart. Can start squash seeds indoors in cell packs 3-4 weeks before the last frost.
