growing squash. It is a natural climber. Give it
plenty of room to grow and climb ,with a strong trellis, or fence. As it
grows, your neighbors and friends will be absolutely amazed. In the fall,
you can enter it in fall festivals and weighoffs. Or, sell some to your local
grocery stores, which love to pick up novel fruits and vegetables either
for sale or display.
