Very Happy    At least you know what you will and will not plant next year.

I'll try one zucchini and one yellow crook-necked squash, grown vertically. Waiting for results on my winter spaghetti and butternuts. Cantaloupe vertically is a definite yes.

Last year I planted zukes in 5 gallon buckets to save the room in the square foot boxes and it worked good, I got enough to eat but not enough to not know what to do with!  You could give that a whirl next year maybe!  My favorite way to eat yellow squash it slice and topped with parmesan cheese and baked in the oven, yum.

I might try that with patty pan, as I really like those, and their bush habit can be reasonably contained in a five-gallon bucket. Also, I'm definitely going to be trying more self-watering five-gallon buckets next year, and squash is a thirsty beast perfect for those.

However, I probably will use most of those buckets for things other than squash, as the large amount of space and soil I gave over to squash this year was very unproductive.

Definitely give pan patty squash a go next year, I'll had good success so far with multiple squashes on all my 4 separate squares. One is in a bucket and it's producing too. I'm with you, I think I will place them all in buckets next time so they don't dominate the beds and suck all the water.

Are they really displaying upside down?  They appear ok on all my devices.

Reason I ask, quite a few people have said the same thing on other threads and I thought they were joking. jocolor

Yep, they are upside down.   Something is rotating the photos 180*.  Probably when they cross the equator, they flip over  Very Happy
