So far, so good. These are doing a lot better than some summer squash I planted and then had to rip out due to disease. Even the squash bugs don't seem to bother these as much. Had our first acorn squash a couple of days ago, and they taste wonderful! Big vigorous plants, with a bonus bush that produces lovely albino fruit no less... they don't need to be babied and require little water and no fertilizer- what more can you ask for?
