Oh thats great. Space is a factor so I only grow bush type squash. If I can find the seeds I might give delicata squash a shot next year.

You could say the Delicata is the same size of plant as the crookneck squash. Maybe a little bigger than zucchini. Depends on the zucchini though I guess.

I ate some Butternut squash soup tonight. I plan on growing squash from here on out. I am curious about Delicata as well, but from what I read I know it will be good to eat. So eventually I will try that one too.
