Soil Preparation:Remove weeds, large rocks, and litter from the planting area. Till the soil 8-10 inches deep several weeks before planting. It is best to do this when the soil is dry enough to not stick to garden tools. Loosening the soil will help the plant establish strong roots. Squash grows best in soil with lots of organic matter. You may optionally spread 2-3 inches of organic material such as compost, leaves, or rotted hay over the planting area before tilling to mix into the soil.
Planting:In the Spring, plant patty pans after all danger of frost has passed. In the Fall, plant patty pans early so squash will mature before first killing frost, about 10 to 12 weeks. Plant 5-6 patty pan seeds 1 inch deep in each hill spaced 1 1/2-2 feet apart on rows that are spaced 3-8 feet apart. Water after planting the seeds. After the patty pan plants have sprouted to 3-4 inches tall, thin to 3 squash plants per hill to ensure adequate growing space.
You may optionally use 2-3 tablespoons of fertilizer for each hill. For large plots, you may use 2-3 pounds of fertilizer for each 100 square feet of garden area. Scatter the fertilizer evenly over a 2-foot by 2-foot area then work into the top 3-4 inches of soil.
