Trellised Squash

We harvested about 40 small winter squash yesterday. They were trellised using T-posts and concrete reinforcing grid. The trellis is discussed here.

The advantage of trellising is space saving. These squash only took up about 60 square feet of garden space, grown in one 10 foot raised bed.

The big Australian Butter Squash in the back of the picture did fine, but it was really too big for the trellis. It should have been trailing along the ground with the Hubbard’s, large pumpkins and the monster Boston Marrow that we’ll be harvesting in the next couple days.
