- Grower Shekhina found squash (Butternut, Yellow, and Zucchini) would not germinate in soil made acid from pine needles. Grower Robert had great success with Butternut squash, considered a hardy squash that can be stored in a root cellar. Grower Roger found his Acorn squash received from The Arc not true to type, having cross bred, and is attempting to breed true.
