Direct sow at 3 or 4-week intervals beginning after last frost (or sow indoors up to 3 weeks earlier--but no sooner). Provide fertile soil for quick and steady growth. Pick when squash are 3-4 inches in diameter. Harvest steadily, and plants will continue to produce for up to a month. Replace with fresh plants at this point, as old summer squash plants quickly lose vigor.
