Squashes Dislike Hardship

What caused these squashes, of which I send you samples, to be so hard

and woody? They were grown without irrigation.

Your squashes were grown without irrigation under conditions which were

too dry for them and became inferior in quality. Possibly the variety

itself is not of good quality or the specimen from which the seed was

taken may have been inferior. A squash, in order to be tender and

acceptable, needs rich feeding and plenty of drink. Otherwise, it is apt

to resent ill treatment by very undesirable growth.
