I can't believe how many squash this one plant is producing, it gets a picking every 3 to 4 days, and still more come.

What a terrific plant. Don't you love it when you have a success like that!
I have added MycoApply to all my beds now. Hoping that this means they are permanently dosed with Mycorrhiza.
The rain has accelerated things! ... I'm a convert to Ectomycorrhiza (and friends) inoculation. I ran out of Great White with this bed, however added a good load of soil from a previous and live with plants great white inoculated garden-bed, I also added crusher dust, sand with a dash of volcanic rock dust to the local planting area (down to 400mm). Beside and in-between the squash and melons is a 600 diameter x 600 deep worm farm (re-cycled broken pot) sunken 500mm into the original hugelkultur pit.
The squash lives with several different Melons in a worked section of a hugelkultur bed.
Can't complain about that Rob! Maybe it's your 'great white' soil addition in combination with the recent rain.
