Growing Successful Summer Squash

Summer squash such as zucchini, yellow crookneck, yellow summer, and pattypan are a fun and easy crop to grow in the home garden.  These bush-type squash take up little precious real estate in the garden and produce an abundance of fruit that can be eaten raw in salads, stir-fried, steamed, or cooked in various dishes.  See the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Yard & Garden news release from July 2, 2014 for tips on how to enjoy a bountiful harvest of summer squash from your garden.
