Many people swear by planting later.

In PA the SVB lays it's eggs July and August and they take 10 days to hatch. They feed for 4 weeks before the plant dies.

I like to plant some early and then another planting 2-3 weeks later. This way the second planting is producing when the first one dies from SVB infestation.

This year I started a squash in a pot indoors and planted it in the garden as soon as it was warm enough. This worked well for me and it produced a lot of squash.

If I plant too late in the summer my plants get powdery mildew really bad. Yours looks nice and healthy.
