Hello y’all, and thank you for visiting our site! We here at Oregon Squash King Seeds believe in non-GMO Heirloom seeds and the lifestyle they brings. Let’s face it; we don’t want to grow for our families or sell at farmers markets the same stuff you find on the store shelves. We want the quality and taste of years gone by. We want to help pass on family traditions of canning and holiday recipes that can’t be found in modern varieties. We believe this is one of the best selections at any one place for this kind of produce. We also farm for our friends and family and sell at local farmers markets. Since we carry it, we have grown it and keep it growing. Let us help you enjoy some of the best fruits and vegetables the way God intended them to be! Our seed packs are bigger than most--we don't fool you with $1 seed packs and then give you six seeds. If. You need more than 2 packs, order a bigger size. Here's a guide: If you want to grow pickling cucumbers to can for 3 dozen jars, you will need one pack of seeds. If you're doing 10 dozen, you need an ounce of seeds. If you only want a few pumpkins or squash, just order a pack! Make sense? Happy growing everyone!!!!!!
Simple Growing Ideas
Hey everyone! Just thought we'd share some simple growing ideas. With winter squash, it's best to till manure in along with straw and mulch. Try to stay away from wood chips because they will suck nutrition out of the soil; or you can buy some 10. 20. 20. or triple 16 fertilizer. Also, feed the plants at least twice with a manure tea or store bought.
To have the tastiest squash and the best pumpkins, plant as late as possible. Why you ask? They will freeze, which is what you want at their final maturity stages. A couple light frosts helps them change their starches to sugars.; this enhances their flavor! Also your pumpkins can be the brightest and make the best displays in late September but not in August. This is really important for pie size pumpkins you want them as tasty as possible. Well that's it on the squash growing. Everyone has there own ideas, these are tried and true ways.
Now, for one main tip on the 3 Sisters. Companion planting method is important. Pick a corn that matches the growing time as the squash. If you want acorn squash, pick a 70 or 80 day corn; if your growing jack 'o lantern, pick a 100 day corn. You want everything to mature around the same times.
We try to carry a lot; we are adding inventory all the time. Most of our varieties are suited for the northern tier of the country. If we have left out any of your favorites, shoot us an email.. This fall we will be adding 50 kinds of Heirloom tomatoes and about the same amount of peppers and lots. more. flowers. So happy growing!!!
