To plant bush scallop squash, follow these steps:

  1. Choose a sunny spot in your garden with well-drained soil. Bush scallop squash needs at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, and their roots need to be able to spread out easily.
  2. Amend the soil with compost or other organic matter. This will help to improve drainage and fertility.
  3. Warm the soil to at least 65 degrees Fahrenheit before planting. You can do this by covering the planting bed with black plastic mulch for a few weeks before planting.
  4. Sow the seeds directly in the ground, 1 inch deep and 2-3 feet apart. You can also start seeds indoors 2-3 weeks before your last frost date, and transplant them outdoors when the soil is warm enough.
  5. Thin the seedlings to one plant per hill. Do this when the seedlings have two or three true leaves.
  6. Bush scallop squash plants need regular watering, especially during hot weather. Water deeply once a week, or more often if the weather is hot and dry.
  7. Fertilize the plants every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
  8. Mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  9. Bush scallop squash plants are susceptible to pests and diseases, so be on the lookout for problems. Common pests include aphids, cucumber beetles, and squash bugs. Common diseases include powdery mildew, anthracnose, and wilt.
  10. Bush scallop squash are ripe when they have a firm rind and are 3-4 inches in diameter. Harvest the squash by cutting them from the vine with a sharp knife.
