Squash club: May is the time to sow your crops – and pumpkins and squash are the best of the lot
Saturday 02 May 2009
May is mayhem for vegetable growers. So much stuff needs to be sown, including the crops that will keep you going through autumn and winter: beetroot, autumn and winter cabbage, calabrese, carrots, cauliflower, chicory, kale, salsify, scorzonera, turnips and the best of them all – pumpkins and squashes. "Squash never fail to reach maturity," wrote the American humorist S J Perelman. "You can spray them with acid, beat them with sticks and burn them; they love it." That kind of dogged determination is an endearing characteristic in a plant. Since you will have to work hard to prevent squashes and pumpkins from growing, you can divert your energy to the question of choice. Which members of this staggeringly varied family – apricot, orange, yellow, green, ivory, or a mesmeric metallic pewter grey – would you most like to look at this summer?
