FORDHOOK SUMMER SQUASH (57 days)

1

Germ 7-10 days
Smooth, cylindrical, deep green almost black zucchini with flavorful ivory flesh. Generous crops are produced from the bushy plants. Harvest at 5-8” for the most tender crop. 20 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors - Plant in individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2" deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant 36" apart after last frost without disturbing the roots.

Outdoors - 1/2" - 1" deep after last frost, in warm soil at least 70 degrees. Sow a few seeds per space/hill with 24-36"

Harvest - Check and harvest a few times a week. Cut or kindly twist off fruit, starting at 3-4".

Tips - Plant in fertile soil amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth. Fertilize on a regular basis by watering with compost tea. Sow every few weeks for a continuous supply.

I got my garden in

I got my garden in late due to travel and then leg problems. So I have very little to say about any of this because it’s not big enough yet.
