My son and I are planting all sorts of seeds to see what we can get to grow and are having lots of luck (and fun) . Tonight we are having squash and I want to plant the seeds. Can I just plant the seeds right out of the squash in dirt or do I need to soak them, let them dry and then plant them?
No...you cant plant it straight from the vegetable You have to dry them for a month or so first...I am doing some now myself...place them in a container or lay them out evenly spaced where they can breathe and dry...then you can plant them in your garden...but as the above states...be careful...they will grow...yes...but if the squash came off a hybrid plant you may not end up with the same type of sqush...it will be a cross breed!!
I dont have package seeds, as my question states. I am wanting to grop them from the seeds straight from the squash. As far as HOW to plant them, I know that...was just wondering if I have to dry the seeds 1st or can plant them straight from the veggetable...
You can plant them from the seed. You will need to build a small mound and poke four holes finger deep. One to two seeds per hole. Cover and water- follow planting time on back of package. Plant will emerge within two to three weeks.
You should be able to plant the straight from the vegetable. Just be careful, they can get out of hand :-)
