Squash Experst: Trellis Suggestions?
Last year I had some success with my first squashes: lemon squash (summer) and North Georgia candy roaster (winter). The lemon squash was semi-bush, so I'll try a trellis for it this year. The candy roaster vines can easily exceed 50 feet! I just let the vines run outside my raised beds along my straw-mulched paths. That worked okay, but I'm planting more compact winter squashes this year: bush buttercup and delicata. Also, I have seminole pumpkin seeds--will I find them just as vigorous as the candy roaster? I am experimenting with building trellises with 1x2s, so if you have suggestions for trellis types for the lemon and delicata, and if there is a trellis suitable for the seminole pumpkin, I'd appreciate your advice.
