Here are a couple of clips of our squash taken back in the summer. We tried growing some butternut squash on a trellis this year, just to see how it would go. It might be a good choice for those who are limited on space, but still want to grow some butternut.

    I have never thought of growing squash on a trellis. We didn't get many squash at all this year because of the vine borer's. I will try this next year! Thanks for the video!

    I was never a squash fan but last week we had our works Christmas night out which included a meal. We had roasted butternut squash and I loved the taste, I have some seeds for next year so looking forward to growing this.

    This is a great idea, considering I don't grow anything that covers the ground and snakes might hide in it 🙂 Thank you for sharing Jim! Have a great weekend!!!

    nice fall veggies.  the trellis helps airflow on that vine too… prevents powdery mildew

    haven't done the squash yet, not on purpose. they rooted a spot amongst my pole beans and cucumbers. wrestled a spot and won out. planted cucumbers first year on trellis and won't plant on ground unless exces planting. they done exceptional. my muskmellons climbed my corn and produced okay. I agree vines need sonething to climb. great video MWG. thank you bundle up.

    That looks like a good way to grow them, There on my list for next year. I am trying to find those trellis panels, the ones that TSC sells up here have four inch squares for half the panel, then two inch for the other half . I will have to try Home Despot to see if they have the concrete reinforcing variety. with even size squares. Your Squash looked very good. I like them roasted in chunks, brings out the sweetness. Cheers.

    Been thinking to grow butternut squash next season. I agree that it gets a better pollination when the vining plants are on the trellis.

    We only got a couple this year. Vine borers were one of our nemesis's. I may very well try the trellis method next year. Have a great day. Best wishes Bob.
