Planting: Yellow squash wants warm soil and air temperatures for growing—in the 70s°F is optimal. Squash seed won’t germinate in cold soil. Wait until the soil temperature has reached 60°F before direct seeding or setting out starts. Lay down a sheet of black plastic to warm the soil before sowing or planting. Plants started in chilly temperatures may become stunted.Space plants 18-24" apart in rows 6' apart. Wider spacing may allow for easier harvesting.

Watering:Keep the soil evenly moist. Give squash 1 inch of water a week. The critical time for watering is during bud development and flowering. Once plants are established, mulch with straw, hay, or dried leaves to retain soil moisture and suppress weeds. Drought stressed plants are more susceptible to insect attacks.

Harvesting: Harvest regularly, 2-3 times a week, once plants begin to produce. Cut or gently twist off fruits when they have reached the desired size. Handle with care to avoid scratching fruits
