This old blog contains a lot random ramblings. It follows my family's journey across three states and our attempt to become more self-sufficient.
That would make one heck of a squash casserole.
Looks like a gigantic bug egg...
Lol. You guys are funny!
Hubbard is another heifer as these old style rather funky squash average about 40 pounds plus. Very tasty.. and thankfully a smaller variety (Baby Hubbard) is comparable. Banana squash.. oh yum. I hope you grabbed one! They are quite tasty!! (And an open pollinated strain.. but long vines so make sure you have the room!)Love squash... looove squash.. butter and brown sugar.. butternut sage ravioli.. oh gawd I'm hungry now.They take up a lot of room. I wanted to put in a massive squash patch this year (irony.. that would be the only plants not decimated by bugs this year.)Squash get better with storage. Tromboncino rampicante is one that can be trellised.. good eating at immature stage (like zucchini) and also produces a lovely winter keeper when allowed to mature. On a trellis these long fiends grow nice and straight.. making storage much easier. A lot of "neck" meat.. the seed cavity is at the bulbous end. Open pollinated strain (c. moschata).. careful as it will cross with butternut.
Don't you spam me...I'll just delete it!
