Spaghetti Squash ?

Post  newbeone on 3/29/2017, 4:50 am

How Big do these things get? I saved seed from one I bought last Year and started out with three on the end of a bed lost two to the squash bugs but the survivor is doing GREAT it's in a corner square and so far it's taken over six other squares and still growing.

Mine was no bigger than a cucumber plant last year, but it only produced one fruit and then died, so I am not a good example. (The rest of my plants didn't even get that far.) Just like Charlie Brown, however, I will try again this year. Grew 6 from seed that will be ready to put out next week. Rolling Eyes

I had 5 plants last year and let them wander - this means that they spread out of their boxes into the grass around the beds and kept going - up to 10 ft from the roots. Each plant produced 2-3 fruit which I thought was low production but at least they produced.

Space is a premium in my yard so everything grows up.  Yes, the nylon trellis supported winter squash.  Later in the season, some daughter vines escaped the 2'x4' bed (3 trellises) and produced fruit.
Squashes and cantaloupe.

Thanks Sanderson for the pictures I didn't realize the spaghetti squash plant was a vine, I went out yesterday and built a trellis for it and the Muskmelons  have planted next to it, Now the fun part redirecting it to grow to the trellis here's a few pictures of my effort so far.

It looks like you have the isles covered in wood chips, so if some vines "jump the ship", they should be okay. :-) That one squash looks like a keeper.

Thanks, Scorpio. I guess it can't stay on the vine too long. It's no wonder these puppies are so expensive at the store. They take forever and each vine only produces one. If it's the best we've ever had, it will be worth it. Otherwise, I'll have to find someplace else to grow it -- up, maybe -- so it doesn't take up so much space for so long. Rolling Eyes
