One of the "Three Sisters of Life" crops!
Squash is one of the easiest, most productive, quickest crops you can grow! These warm-season vegetables, known as summer or winter, offer a staggering variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and flavors (even the flowers are delicious!). Summer squash is harvested when small and tender, while winter squash is picked when the skin can't be pierced with a fingernail, its hard rind making it easy to store. Squash grows as a bushy plant or vine, depending on the type, and there are even compact ones for small gardens and containers.
