Morris’s Squash

Late September

Morris’s butternut squash plant has been fun to watch this year. It wrapped it’s vines around his garden box and settled in, growing two, big beautiful butternut squash. Tonight, Morris picked them, as their skin was hard and tan (turning from a very pale green). These guys got big! Each one weighed over 4 pounds and were 11 inches long!

We have about four more growing in our back garden, and thankfully, these will last off the vine for up to 3 months. We will cook them and eat them with butter and brown sugar, and I can cut it up and freeze it for soups. We’ll enjoy! Thanks, Morris!
