How To Use Squash Pits To Get Bigger Garden Yields


Are you working your vegetable garden so hard and still not yielding the desired results? There is a way in which you can get better results. No, we’re not talking about chemical fertilizers but a squash pit instead! What is that, you may ask? Well, this particular type of method involves you digging a pit in the ground which will be using compost in order to grow the best squash. It isn’t a walk in the park, but it can be done if you dedicate a weekend to some work. As far as materials go, you need a shovel, some tape measure and paper objects, like unused magazines, mail or books. Be sure to watch the video provided here and see how it all works. Share the project info with your fellow veggie friends or neighbors.

      She was scooping sand…”The strange thing about digging in sand is you never have enough to fill the hole you dug.”
      You didn’t see her results, and her garden didn’t look like she’s had a ton of successes.

      Talk with and sing to your plants. They’re funny if you listen right.

      Read Ruth Stout’s Gardening Without Work…good stuff there.

    I will summarize:

    “So this guy I know composts everything, I haven’t seen it, but I’m going to show you how. Remember, I’ve never done this. I don’t have any results to show you; I only have my friend’s anecdote.”

    Why did I watch this? Squash is one of the easiest garden plants. If you enjoy eating squash, they’ll come up happy in your compost, the beds you fill with compost, and wherever you put a proper squash mound. That’s soil (not dirt) mounded to 2-3 feet wide and the top 1/2 of conical pile removed. Plant a seed for the snail, one for the bird, and one for you, or buy some starts at any place that sells ’em.

    Good luck with gardening easier!
