Plant 1-2" deep in small mounds 24" apart. Winter squash are heavy feeders so provide fertility initially, then every few weeks through the season.  Harvest before the first frost, as even a slight frost will damage the flesh and make the squash unstorable.  Allow to cure in a sunny, frost free location for 2-3 weeks.  This curing process seals the pores of the squash skin for storage and improves flavor.
