Squash needs a lot of room to grow and it will develop long vines as it matures. I hope there is a way for the vines to creep out of the garden so they can grow to their full length. If not, consider putting in a trellis and training the vines up the trellis. They have to be able to grow or no squash will develop. Cucumbers also need lots of space to develop their vines. It should be interesting in your garden this year! I hope everything has enough room!
