The squash patch has been looking pretty sad lately, and the winter squash vine is essentially dead. The single winter squash growing has stopped changing color and the skin is pretty firm, so, just in time for Halloween…
I harvested my first (and only) pumpkin yesterday!
…errr…I mean, winter squash… It’s not really a pumpkin, it’s a seed from a volunteer squash from my dad’s garden, so it’s a twice crossed squash. A double mutt! I haven’t cut into it yet, so I have no idea what it will taste like.
If I can, I’m planning to continue the lineage by saving it’s seeds, planting them, and continuing to do this over the years to see how the squash changes over the years.
