patti pan growing any advice welcome

hi all

this year i am attempting to grow patti pan summer squash which i was given last year from a friend. a strange space ship type shape however very tasty fried with garlic

so i have been told they grow up treliss so attached photo is my treliss panel with three plants planted ready to go upward.......i hope

The panel was a deal made a few gardens away at the plot which cost me a dozen raspberry cuttings i took last year so a bargain coz i have dozens more

If they work or not i will give updates over the season

    I don't grow up a trellis, I just grow like a sprawling courgette under my sweetcorns

    Hi all

    just an update on my patti pan plants and they are doing well with hopefully my first take this week.

    This plant is a very strong plant and since feeding with comfrey they are going from strength to strength
