Use Egg Cartons to Keep Squash Off the Ground

Use egg cartons to prop your vegetables up out of the dirt in your garden when they get too heavy. I had a squash laying in the dirt and was trying to think what to use to prop it up as it continued to grow. I cut 2 egg cups from an egg carton and placed it under the squash - outside up. Now it is high and dry. You could stake the egg carton in place with a skewer if needed.

That's a very good idea. I have been using pieces of wood, but egg cartons is better.

I use regular tomato cages around my squash, eggplants, cukes, etc. and the cage holds the plant and fruit off the ground. Better air flow too.
