In years past, I've had good luck growing the Burpee Pic & Pic hybrid crook neck squash. Invariably, late in the season; the SVB's would kill the plants. I built pvc pipe hoops covered by netting to protect them this year. While I had great production early in the season, I think the heat hurt the squash as much as it hurt the rest of my garden. I have not seen a single SVB this year so I don't know if the hoops were worth the effort or not. I don't think I will put them back up next year since they don't usually kill my plants until late season anyhow. I will probably use the hoops covered with clear plastic as a cold frame over one of the beds next spring.
I planted three varieties this year just to compare against the Pic & Pic.
"Gold Bar" hybrid grew early and produced big plants. They were not overly productive, but the fruit they did produce were straight neck and probably twice as large as the other varieties when picked early and tender. Productivity tapered off earlier than the other varieties.
"Horn Of Plenty" hybrid germinated late although all varieties were planted on the same day. The plants were medium sized and very productive with medium sized fruit when picked early and tender. It is still producing a few fruit.
"Burpee Pic & Pic" hybrid germinated early, produced medium sized fruit, productivity was very good, continues to produce fruit, and I believe out performed the other varieties. I will probably only plant the pic & pic next year.
All of my squash vines grew between 5' and 6' long. The early leaves would turn brown, and dry up; as the vine grew producing new leaves and new fruit at the growing tips. When the vines exceeded 4' in length, the fruit produced became smaller and smaller.
I am leaving the bed with the pic & pic to produce some late season fruit as it sometimes does. The bed with the Gold Bar has been cleaned and turned over with a lot of organics added and some new soil added. I have planted some pic & pic seed in the reworked bed. Since the temps next week are expected to approach 103 degrees, I expect the seed to germinate, the seedlings will pop their heads up, see how hot it is and just die. If they do, I will keep replanting the bed until I find out what temps the seedlings will survive at and hopefully produce a fall crop of squash.
