Start seeds indoors a month before last frost date, or obtain young plants for direct planting in the garden. After danger of frost has past transplant 3-4 plants in a hill of well-drained soil. Squash plants are vines and will sprawl 6-8 feet; they may be tied to a trellis or fence to grow vertically. Harvest in the fall when skin is tough enough that it can not be pierced with your fingernail.
Use a sharp, hefty knife to cut squash in half from stem to end and scoop out seeds. Grease a roasting pan and place squash halves upside down in the pan; bake at 400° for 1 hour or until tender and brown. Enjoy the "meat" of the squash.
