Squash in 'Hills' - Why?
I often come across the instructions to grow squash in hills, and I wondered if anyone can tell me why this is recommended? Any time I've done it, it's harder to keep the plants moist and I've had much better luck when I just plant at ground level. I've read that Native Americans actually planted their squash in depressions in the ground so that they would stay moister. So what gives?
