I love butternut squash and have planted it in my garden the past three years. But I hadn't found the right spot for the large spreading plant until this year. My gardener suggested planting our 8 plants in a sunny area adjacent to our driveway which I have always considered a gardening challenge area (a unattractive, large dirt area with dogwoods and oaks). And we were successful - the butternut squash plants took off as never before and we had the best harvest ever. Below is just one of our two sections that we planted.
And look at the size of our butternut squash!
This weekend, we began picking the squash and look at all we picked (in the back of our car for transportation to the city)!
Now comes the fun task of figuring out what to do with all of it... Ideas???
