My neighbor brought over these seeds this morning. They’re leftovers of his favorite pumpkins and squashes from previous garden years. I love sharing seeds. I’ll try a few of each and see what I can grow. Thanks Dave! I’ll have tomato and pepper seedlings soon to trade.

Cucurbita pepo (squash)

Pumpkin — Cucurbitaceae spp.

  • Do you have problems with squash bugs?

    A few years back I tried growing squash two years in a row. Both years the squash bugs completely ravaged my plants and I got virtually nothing to eat. The plants also get really large and take up a lot of room. If I could find some way to control the squash bugs, I’d consider squash again even though it takes up two or three times as much space as other vegetables — it is one of my favorite vegetables.

  • That’s why I was happy to get a large new community garden space. I enjoy growing squashes, but they get so big. And they need a lot of sun. I have two good spaces saved for them in my new space.

    I have never seen a squash bug. I do have a lot of trouble with vine borers. I’ll have to start thinking about what I’m going to do about these this year.
