Squash are the romantic comedies of the vegetable world. I tolerate them.
Rows of squash should be eight feet apart. Yes, I'm serious. I'm really, really serious.
In the dead of winter, when planning squash for the garden, don't just think about shapes. Think about color. Golden zucchini, patty pan, lemon squash, and scalloped squash are all white and yellow. A little green would have been nice.
