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!

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
