Q and A: Hopi Pale Grey squash, canning corn, and canning bones — 3 Comments

  1. Diana and Anita,

    Gee, I’m sorry you had such rotten luck this year. We, too, had a very cool and rainy May but, luckily, our squash were planted on very fertilized rock and gravel so they had plenty of drainage. They’re rampant with vines going 50′ or more!!! Hopefully next year you’ll both have better gardens.

  2. I’m over on the Western Slope of Colorado and my Hopi Pale Grey squash took forever to come up. I lost some of my plants to I don’t know what, can’t see any bugs including vine borers, and the two pants I have left there is only one nice squash on them. I fertilized and watered them on a regular basis. Maybe I’ll have better luck next year!

  3. I’m glad I didn’t plant all my Hopi Pale Grey seeds as I’ll be surprised if they have time to produce. My garden is pretty sad this year. Planting was late due to 29 days of rain in May and we’ve had a cool summer as well. What did germinate isn’t growing or producing well. I’m in Colorado Springs. Hopefully next year will be better.
