Want to grow great squash?

They like loose soil rich in organic matter, so this video will show you how to easy amend your soil with compost and other soil amendments and to plant squash and give them the perfect growing medium they need.

It’s easy and only requires a couple hand tools.

I also mention one of my favorite garden power tools – the garden auger.  This attachment is used with a power drill and while often labeled for use planting bulbs, I find it great for digging holes to plant my transplants into.  It’s also great for mixing soil amendments.

You can find the Yard Butler Roto Auger that I have here, but I would also recommend you check out the Tanaka Planting Auger Bit, which has a larger, 3 inch wide head, and a bigger shaft with a hex end so it won’t slip under the high torque conditions encountered when using a garden auger on compacted soil.
