A friend of mine let me use some land of his so I put together 10-4X4′ boxes. The best part of this was that it was all free, which I’ll talk about at a later date. This is banana squash grown vertically. Right now there is a huge squash in the lower left corner-it must weigh 15 pounds right now. There’s another one on the lower right hand side that’s not quit as big yet. Half way up, right in the middle, you can see another squash beginning to form. My guess is that I’ll have 4 or 5 squashes that totally around 60 pounds. It’s all held up by nylon netting that I’ve never had to replace. This location gives me an additional 80 squares for growing. We’ll end up storing this for the winter and it will last us until the end of February or mid-March.
