ansplant into a garden. I am reading conflicting advice as to whether it would be worth it or whether seeds would quickly catch u p with the transplants. Also would tomato plant cuttings be a good idea? Thank you so much for your time.
Since you have a greenhouse, you can start seeds earlier than waiting for the ground to warm up. Here is more information on planting seeds vs. direct sowing:
Tomatoes do well starting indoors in your greenhouse. Cuttings do well, too.
I soaked my squash seeds and they sprouted within 5 days. I potted and now the sprouts are over 3 inches tall. It probably is too early to outside plant in Central North Carolina. What should I do?
The last frost date for your area is April 15, so you don't have long to go. Just keep them in a sunny window or under a fluorescent light until you can get them outside.
Can squash be grown up a fence like cucumbers can? Thank you
Yes! Here is how:
I have had no squash produced in 2 seasons. I thought they were not getting pollinated due to no bees. But I have bees this season and they have been pollinating. So I have come to the conclusion that my issue is blossom end rot. I am going to be doing the Epsom spray, as it’s too late to add lime to the soil and we don’t eat many eggs. How often do I do this?
Be sure to test your soil before adding anything. It could be a pH issue, too much nitrogen, not enough phosphorus and potassium, or a number of things. Usually, blossom end rot will present itself as, both, calcium and magnesium deficiencies. The fruit will form, mostly, normally until the end. Then it will start to rot at the bottom.

Growing in all homemade compost. I did water a lot thinking the soil was not holding moisture.
I recently planted out my winter squash and pumpkin seedlings in the garden. The leaves still look perky, not wilted, but some of the plants are getting yellowish leaves. I have heavy clay soil, but I tried to plant them in little pockets of "garden and flower soil w/ fertilizer" from Lowe's. Am I watering too much for the heavy soil? Or is the fertilizer not the right balance? Thanks!!!
They receive daily water and they are planted in soil from a black bin composter. I added compost tea a couple of days ago; no change.
That seems to be a common problem. This article should help.
