Front yard: 3 large pots with bush variety squash and/or climbing squash for the trellis hanging off the tree by the corner: turban, delicata, butternut. Rope from fence over tree branch and attached to other fence. Will attach ropes vertically and tie vines up to these. Might look like a suspension bridge such as the Golden Gate.
Delicata: excellent climber, also bushy. Sweet Dumpling: trellis. Butternut: trellis. Turban: trellis. Bush plants: Tomatoes, Chillies.
Back yard: Fairytale pumpkin, or other large sprawling squash. Most likely two varieties: fairytale and turban.
I’d decided to add fertilizer, because I kept reading that the healthier your plants, the more resistant they are to pest and disease.
Grew these for the first time; high plains of Colorado. They were affected but not a favorite of the squash bugs. Quite prolific even though I planted late and from seed.
They suit our shorter, cooler summers.
Needs room if not bush variety.
