Hоw to grоw Scallop Squash from seeds:

Sowing: In regions with a short growing season, seeds can be planted one month indoors before the last expected frost. To not injure the plants and increase the chance of a successful transplant, use peat pots initially. Plant two seeds in a pot, later pruning the weaker seedling. Temper the seedlings by exposing them outside for several hours during the week before replanting. When soil temperatures average 65 degrees F, plant the seedlings in very rich soil 8-10' apart in rows 10-12' apart. Another option is to plant the seedlings on two hills 8-10' apart. For direct seeding, plant seeds in a soil temperature of at least 70 degrees F, 1/2" deep, 3-4' apart. Corn is a good companion plant, but avoid potatoes.
Growing of Scallop Squash: Since squash seedlings do not tolerate frost, so provide them with protective shelters at temperatures below 65 degrees F. Although, for squash, moist soil is essential, do not wet the plant leaves to avoid rot and mold. Whеn the vines begin to develop, a layer of mulch will hеlp retain moisture and fight weeds; A layer of mulch will keep the water in, and the squash crop will be clean without excessive contact with the soil.
How and When to Harvest Scallop Squash: These squashes taste most delicate when they reach 2–3" in diameter. The vines give bountiful harvests throughout the summer. Store fresh zucchini in the refrigerator for about two weeks, or freeze them.
Scallop Squashes Seed Saving: After flowering, expect the seeds to develop. Collect the brown pods and dry them in a protected area away from direct sunlight. Remove the seeds from the head of squashe, store them in a cool, dry place.
