Organic Yellow Scalloped Squash or Pattypan may be planted in a patio/balcony environment by using containers or raised beds. Pattypan Squash are easy and fun to grow, one plant will produce a dozen squash. We suggest using a 5 gallon size container or larger, with drainage holes, fill with pre-fertilized potting soil. After all danger of frost is past, plant 3 or 4 seeds 1" deep, 2-3" apart, thin out to 1 per pot when large leaves appear. Place in a sunny location. Keep soil moist and damp but not wet. If soil feels dry to the touch one inch deep, add water until it drains out the bottom of your pot. Harvest when squash is small 2-4" and the color turns to yellow. This is a semi-bush plant, you may need to support it with a trellis.
