In this article you will see how to build a squash arch and get more food per square inch than you would have without one, plus, they look amazing in any garden!
The great thing about building a squash arch is the simplicity of the project. You can build many of these that provide beautiful garden structures that produce amazing squash and won’t break the bank! I will be doing this project this year as I am growing butternut squash for the first time.
Our friends over at getbusygardening.com have a great tutorial that shows you what you need and how to build these fine arches. As a side note, keep your wife’s old pantyhose because you may need then to hold up the squash. Check it out below and if you can add anything to this project, please comment on Facebook, we love to hear your thoughts!

This is as self-sufficient as it gets. Watch this eye-opening video to learn more:
Homesteading will take you back to the roots of your ancestors. It's not only a healthy, stress-reducing pursuit, it's a lifestyle.
