I winter sowed Sp. Squash last year. Every seed sprouted. I transplanted the plants in Spring. They took off with no resentment. I planted them with Butternut squash (winter sown) to climb up the same wire fence we made for the plants. The spaghetti squash pretty much took over. Produced a lot of squash and grew over the 9 foot or more fence/trellis. I am not going to plant Sp Squash this year as we prefer the Butternut. It's more versatile for cooking and to me, is more tasty--also more calories! It also over winters better than Sp Squash.

Very interesting! Thanks for reading and commenting. I do love Butternut squash w/ real butter, salt and pepper.

Side note: (We don't use margarine and haven't for 30 years. I just read that "margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC... and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT". I don't know how true that is, but it is interesting.)

Thanks again,
