Winter Squash is a warm season crop, sensitive to frost and light freezes. Start Heirloom / Open Pollinated Winter Squash indoors 3-4 weeks, before the last frost date or direct seed outdoors after the danger of frost. Plant Winter Squash in full sun. To direct seed, plant 6-8 seeds 1″ deep in 1′ diameter hills, thinning to 3 or 4 plants at the set of true leaves. Or plant Golden Delicious seeds in rows 1″ deep, 2′ apart. Keep rows and hills 6′ apart. Germination should occur in 5-10 days at 65-85°F. Keep the soil just damp during germination, or seeds may rot—Harvest when the Winter Squash rind has hardened, and fingernails require pressure to pierce the rind. Leave a 2-3″ stem on when cutting from the plant for more extended storage.
