10-C--LUBBOCK AVALANCHE.JOURNAL—Sunday Morning, April 6, 1975 Wide Variety By ALLAN A. SWENSON You can enjoy squash in summer, fall and winter. Actually, yhen you select the,right varic- ies, you can enjoy squash fear-round. You have a wide hoice — green, white, yellow, 'range and multicolored too.

If they can wander at will over noncultivated areas, try them. Otherwise,' stick with the space-saver types. Thin to 3 or 4 plants per hill or group for bush types, 2 or 3 for runaway varieties. For winter squash, use the same planting and thinning as for bush types.

Squash contain lots of water, so give them lots Lo drink. iMulch well around the hills, use moss, rotted manure mixed) vitli old leaves. The better you mulch, the less water will be ost, and weeds won't spi-out .lirough lo rob water and nu- .rients. We leave some areas with a permanent mulch. Every week all our available mulch material is distributed evenly. Then each spring we simply use a we or four-tinod rake to pull, away the mulch and scratch open the soil, planting hills in the space cleai-cd. This saves laws, of work. Belter yet, the mulch keeps adding valuable organic matter to the soil year after year. Caution: squash tends to bear heavily. Only a few ilills will feed you well. It is best to have two hills, each of several varieties. It varies your diet and saves space. In neighborhoods or community gardens, share seeds around or arrange to share harvest That way you can have youi squash and cat some of youi neighbor's too.
