Mad about suashes at the moment. Grew spaghetti squash first time and it is amazing. Any other great ones out there, what is your favourite fellow gardeners? So many of them, dont know what to try next year. Thanks!
Zuchinni is always a winner-- one or two plants is enough. I've always wanted to plant Acorn Squash-- but haven't yet. It is easy to microwave, pierced and whole-- then cut, scoop seeds and pulp out, add a little butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Zuchinni is good, but for me, it will always be Pumpkin with Butternut soup. And when making the soup, don't forget the coriander leaves and the 'must have' ingredient.... a pot of single cream. MMMmmmmmmmmm!!
Try heirlooms, they are old fashioned squash varieties. The reason they are still around is because the are flavorful and good producers. I like acorn squash, because it is a good long keeper. Butterbut squash will also keep for a long time, should you get a bumper crop. Try a couple of different kinds of zuchini and see which you like better and which does best in tou part of the country,
