any suggestions to train summer squash to grow vertically?
I am a first time vegetable gardener. We have a small square plot where we are growing corn, yellow squash and watermelon. Seeds were placed in: corn-squash-corn-watermelon-corn-squash-corn configuration. The crops to the right of the watermelon row are taking off and We've enjoyed some of the squash already.
My question is... Is it too late to build and train the squash to grow vertically? If I still have time, what suggestions do you have for me to rig a vertical structure to guide them, hopefully without damaging the plants? How do you secure the plants to the structure to train them? Please help.
The reason I'm asking is that as the weather warms, the corn will take off, and the squash may not have adequate sun.
Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions!
