ok so i started a garden this yr. I forgot to save the seed packets well i have summer squash coming up and not too sure when to pick them as i have never grown them before. I planted the squash for my mom who loves them. right now the squash is about 4 inches long but how long do they need to be before picking them?

i just threw this garden together this yr my mom told me i can have a garden a week before most stuff needed to be in the ground i still think i might have planted the lettuce way too late in the season :(

thanks for any info

4 inches is about minimum, the longer you wait the larger they'll get. But if they get huge they'll also get tough and you'll have to use a recipe for vegetable marrow instead of young summer squash.
