How Big do these things get? I saved seed from one I bought last Year and started out with three on the end of a bed lost two to the squash bugs but the survivor is doing GREAT it's in a corner square and so far it's taken over six other squares and still growing.

Mine was no bigger than a cucumber plant last year, but it only produced one fruit and then died, so I am not a good example. (The rest of my plants didn't even get that far.) Just like Charlie Brown, however, I will try again this year. Grew 6 from seed that will be ready to put out next week. Rolling Eyes

I had 5 plants last year and let them wander - this means that they spread out of their boxes into the grass around the beds and kept going - up to 10 ft from the roots. Each plant produced 2-3 fruit which I thought was low production but at least they produced.

Space is a premium in my yard so everything grows up.  Yes, the nylon trellis supported winter squash.  Later in the season, some daughter vines escaped the 2'x4' bed (3 trellises) and produced fruit.

Spaghetti Squash ? 3170584802 It looks like you have the isles covered in wood chips, so if some vines "jump the ship", they should be okay. :-) That one squash looks like a keeper.

Thanks, Scorpio. I guess it can't stay on the vine too long. It's no wonder these puppies are so expensive at the store. They take forever and each vine only produces one. If it's the best we've ever had, it will be worth it. Otherwise, I'll have to find someplace else to grow it -- up, maybe -- so it doesn't take up so much space for so long. Rolling Eyes

Hello newbeone, This is my first post. I have some spaghetti squash to SFG plant for the first time. I've been reading up on it, which led me to this forum. I'm glad I found it. Could you please tell me where I could find that type of trellis material shown in your photos?

One year I used the netting Mel recommended, on my butternut squash, that was advertised as being close to indestructible. It broke in a few places the first year. I could try again, but I'm considering the type you have here.

Thank you!

The one and only year I grew spaghetti squash, the vines grew huge and produced at least a dozen good sized squash. I trained them up a cattle panel arch and the fruits hung down it without any extra support. Everyone who came over thought I was growing watermelons. I got the cattle panels at tractor supply. HTH.

That is so neat, Molly!  Do you happen to have a picture of them on the arbor that you can post here? That would be cool to see.

I posted a picture of the new cattle panel tunnel arbor I built this year, and just now getting plants started on it. The is the picture of it right after it was built.

I looked up the posts from August, 2013 and found this picture I'd posted at the time. This is only one plant. The one tendril going up the trellis ended up with a bunch of squashes as did the one trailing on the ground.

Maybe it did so well because most of the rest of the bed was fallow and covered in black plastic against weeds?

https://i.servimg.com/u/f33/17/81/13/67/img_1917.jpg

I don't remember taking a picture of the actual fruit hanging off the trellis. I wish I had, but at the time I didn't have a smartphone and it was difficult for me to post pictures, so it doesn't look like I took any.

How much spacing did you keep between your raised beds, OG? Your trellises look very nice!

Those two beds are 4' apart. With the 16' cattle panel bowed over with the 4' separation at the bottom, the arbor is 6.5' high in the center.

 Yes, thank you, very helpful. But I see you mentioned "the one and only year" you grew spaghetti squash. Would you mind sharing why?

Nothing to do with the squash per-se. The vines were very productive so no complaints.

I just had an idea to experiment with different squash, cantaloupe, and melon varieties each year, and since that's the only cattle panel I had at the time (I just put in two more this summer), real estate was at a premium.

My growing season is very short, so for what it's worth, the spaghetti squash so far has been the best producer. I'd totally grow it again if I had room for more vines.

Okay, good! I do have enough room (I think, I will soon find out if they grow successfully), I was just wondering if there was something I should know before proceeding.  Thanks!

Yes, very easy to do.  Instead of clicking on the "Quote" button in the post, click on the "Post Reply" button below the post. That will open the box to post your reply without the quoted article in it.
