Another Try at Growing Yellow Squash

In my seemingly never ending quest for American veggies, I am once again attempting to grow yellow squash. This past December, I received a packet of squash seeds from an American visiting from Texas. I gave a handful of these seeds to my wife's papa who planted the seeds directly into the ground at the property in Magatas. As can be seen in a previous post, those seeds sprouted and seedlings began to grow.

Unfortunately, the heavy rains at the time killed the seedlings.

I'm trying once again to grow squash. I've taken a egg tray and cut it down to 12 "chambers". After adding soil, I put 2 seeds per "cup". (a few may actually have 3 seeds).

Let's hope I'm successful this time.
