1. After danger of frost has passed, plant squash seeds or transplants directly in the garden,
  2. Sow a lew rattail radish seeds in between the rows or around the hills of squash and at the ends of the rows. Rattail radish seeds are available in seed catalogs—check the listings for oriental vegetables. (One source is Pine-tree Garden Seeds,- see "Sources," beginning on page 308.)

If you're planting different types of summer squash together, such as pattypan squash and zucchini, plant extra rattail radishes between them. The radishes will confuse pests and serve as row markers at the same time.
