By the way it tasted good and am keeping the seeds for next year.

Butternut squash

Postby Carrie » Sun Sep 18, 2005 10:23 am

Hi everyone. My butternut squash plants (5) have completely taken over my small garden - but the fruit is amazing! I have two questions if anyone here can help:
Do you have to wait until they turn that sandy colour you see in the shops, before picking them off? (I'm scared they will wither or rot if I leave them too long!)
And does anyone know how you go about 'drying' squashes to make hollow gourds? I love eating them but have a lot and would like to make a mobile/hanging of some.

Don't know anything about growing squashes but I love eating them. :D

I make huge trays of roasted veg and we all love them. I put a bit of olive oil in a large roasting dish and peel and cube the veg. We have peppers, onions, butternut squash, aubergine, courgette, little potatoes, parsnips whatever I have around. It is really colourful and tastes great. My neighbour makes a nice soup from squashes.
