Q.Growing Squash In Central California
What do you know about growing Squash in central California. We are very lucky if you can get the vines to stay up through July. They want to wilt and then go flat. They turn light green and then down they go in a few days. I even purchased special disease resistant seeds, did not help. I put down reflective mulch to ward off bugs, that failed as well. What say you? Thanks, jim
