Fast Growing Squash – It’s Time To Eat !

It’s been 30 days now since I planted this garden spot. The combination of summer heat and water makes for some very rapid growth. The squash and zucchini are already producing. And the corn has been side dressed and”laid by”. Vegetables grow much faster during the summer months. So if your seed packets say 50-60 days to harvest, you can usually expect a harvest a good 10-15 days sooner. This is something to keep in mind if you get in a situation where you need something to eat in a short amount of time. For people who don’t like to eat squash, it can be cooked in many ways or even eaten raw. It’s a good addition to any home garden and provides you an excellent return on your time and effoerts.
