"Summer squash is collected in the warm climate months and doesn't store for long," says Josh Kirschenbaum, vegetable record administrator at PanAmerican Seed. "Winter squash is collected in the fall and has a hard skin, which enables it to keep well for a considerable length of time."

"Less" is relative in light of the fact that most still need 3 to 4 feet of room toward each path to develop. Pick summer squash when it's little and delicate, not enormous and undesirable. Also, prop lifting to keep the reap up!
