When to plant spaghetti squash seeds

When you’re growing spaghetti squash, it’s important to know the length of your growing season. This is because most cultivars of spaghetti squash, including my favorite ‘Vegetable Spaghetti’, require 100 days on average to reach maturity.

Here’s when to plant squash seeds based on your climate.

  1. If you live in a northern growing zone and have a short growing season with less than 100 frost-free days, start squash seeds indoors under grow lights about 4 weeks prior to your last expected spring frost. Another option is to grow a fast-maturing variety such as ‘Small Wonder’, which produces single-serving sized squash in just 80 days.
  2. If you live where the growing season is longer than 100 days, your best bet is to start spaghetti squash from seed planted directly into the garden.

Squash seedlings resent transplanting. Starting squash seeds indoors under grow lights is often counter-productive for those with a growing season over 100 days. Planting transplants out into the garden instead of planting seeds sets plant growth back by a few weeks. Because of this, only start squash seeds indoors if you live in a northern region with a short growing season. Otherwise, plant spaghetti squash seeds directly into garden beds a week or two after the danger of frost has passed. In my Pennsylvania garden, I sow seeds of squash and other warm-season veggies, like cucumbers, beans, and zucchini, anytime between May 15th and June 10th.

Well, this one is easily answered. Since zucchini can be eaten raw, you can eat it any way you please. It goes with pretty much any flavour and can be used from cold salads, bbq zucchini skewers to sweet bread and brownies. Oh yes. Zucchini is a great way to add moisture to baked goods. It has a quite neutral taste when cooked and is very nutrient dense. Zucchini has very few calories due to its high water content and provides you with a wide range of nutrients ranging from a high amount of vitamin C to potassium.

To have a visual taste of it, here are some pictures of dishes that contain or feature zucchini.
