Winter Squash!

Winter squash are here! A mystery to everyone—why are they called winter squash when
they mature in the early fall or late summer? Hmm. . .
We grew five types of winter squash this season. The most easily recognizable squashes we grow are butternut, a large, pear-shaped, nutty-brownish-peach squash, and acorn, a small, dark green squash. We also grow sweet dumpling, a white and green striped pan-shaped delicata squash, a green kabocha, a squat, slate-blue squash, and orange kabocha, a dark orange squash with very firm flesh. Enjoy!
