Squash Growing - My First Try - The Process in Pictures
My Squash Growing in Pictures
This Hub will show you in pictures what squash looks like when the seeds first sprout and the various stages of growth until they are finally mature enough to pick and eat. The pictures tell of my personal experience growing yellow Summer squash in my very own backyard and if I can do it, so can you. As I said; this is my very first attempt to grow this delectable vegetable and speaking as a true beginner, I think they came out very good.
I dearly love squash but they are so expensive at the grocers these days that I feel they're worth the extra effort.
Below are pictures of my first squash patch. The pictures shown, detail the process of growing them from start to finish. I won't detail the eating of them in pictures though because when it comes to squash I'm a little piggy. :)
