I have nasturtium planted in the boxes next to the squash/zucchini. After seeing your post, I went out and placed cages on top of the two inner plants. I am planning to allow the plants on the outside corners to spill over outside the box for additional room. Likewise, its going to be trial and error.

I guess we can learn together then. I saw a video somewhere about training squashes.... may have to dig it up.

I found this information and thought I would share it with you....
first, take a fence post that is 8' tall(the green ones that have a white or a silver color tip on them). They are very strong, and they have sort of a triangular bottom that you pound into the ground. Bang it in the groud for about a foot. Then, take a very heavy rope-mine is about an inch thick(a jump-rope would be great!). Its about 8'10' long. Anyway, tie a strong knot at the base of the post. Now, put in your seeds, transplant, etc. When zucchini starts to grow, it want to lay down. So, you go out there and tie it up with this rope every foot or so. You cannot do it with string. The stem is far too heavy and it will actually end up being "cut" by the string as it falls to the ground.

The zucchini plants are on a green metal stake on the left side. You can actually see one of the zucchini plants. the other(8-ball variety)is just to the right of the tomato plants being grown on stakes.

Step One: Tie a strong knot with a solid piece of rope(string will not work-you will end up breaking your zucchini plant)

Step Two: Plant your zucchini right next to the stake

Step Three: As your zucchini starts to grow, come out and tie it up as
it shows in the second picture. You just have to picture a zucchini stem between the rope and the stake. Very simple....very effective...don't need any kind of "vining" type of zucchini plant.
