Q&A From the Chat

  • Does squash need trellising?
    • Yes, squash works really well when trellising. It can help prevent fruit rot and help with larger plant yield management.
  • I’ve got three pallets thinking we could used them
    • Be careful with pallets. They can be chemically treated and you would not want that leeching into the soil
