For the summer of 2017 we decided to build a little room within the garden which would become known as the squash hut. A few years before we had attempted to grow butternut squash in a similar location and the vines spread like crazy, taking over half the garden. After that we attempted to grow squash vertically on the outside of the garden which worked pretty well. For crop rotation purposes it made the most sense to move the squash back to the center of the garden once again, but this time we were better prepared. In the spring of 2017 we constructed a 3 sided trellis made from pine trees and chicken wire with the intention of directing any squash or pumpkin vines up and over the top. In the end it came out even better than we had hoped.
