I planted about 30 seeds and it seems at least 25 have sprouted. They are now in seeding planter. It is April and I live in Florida. It seems I planted winter squash in summer. HELP. Can I salvage these plants?
I intend to grow both spaghetti and zucchini squash. Do I need to worry about cross-pollination? If so, how far apart do they need to be planted?
One of my squash plants is dying, probably from powdery mildew. All the leaves are yellowing and dying. I’d like to pull the entire plant out now, but there’s a squash on the vine that isn’t ripe yet. If I pick this immature squash, will it continue to ripen? Not sure what kind of squash it is (seed pack was ‘assorted’), but probably acorn, although it looks a little too oblong. Might be spaghetti squash. Also, I’m going to treat the surrounding plants with mixture of baking soda, soap, water and canola oil. Should I rinse plant leaves off after it dries?
My spaghetti squash has ‘wilted’. If I pick the green squash, will they continue to ripen?
I planted spaghetti squash and it grew. What a surprise. Now, when do I pick it? I know when I buy them at the farmer’s market they are yellow. Do I wait for them to turn yellow? They are now a light green/whitish color. Please help.
I have a few spaghetti squash questions.
1) I bought seed for spaghetti squash that had a picture of the mature squash on the package; however, my spaghetti squash never seemed to turn yellow. Instead, they are all a very light, light green. Is there something wrong with them? What can I do to change the color?
2) Is spaghetti squash considered a summer or a winter squash?
3) When is the correct time to harvest them?
When is spaghetti squash ripe and ready to pick, and how should it be stored?
