What kind or mix of fertilizer should I use on my summer crook neck squash? They have been in the ground for about one month and are starting to bloom. The plants look very healthy and I want to keep them that way.

If they are healthy and vigorous, I would leave well enough alone. Squash do need nutrients, but they need to be available early in its life cycle. Depending on what you use, you could overdo at this stage of the game. If they are healthy and vigorous you should have enough.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
