Winter Squash

The winter squash are ready! Many of you have been asking about them as they have been sitting patiently on the shelf behind the pick-up table, waiting to go home with you. We were letting them cure for a week or two, to make sure they would store well for you on your kitchen counters. No need to put them in your refrigerators, but no harm done if you do. If you don’t have room to in your for letting them sit, do what I did last weekend, and freeze them. Just bake them first, then scoop out the insides and stick them in a zip lock bag in the freezer. Winter squash are called “winter squash” because they store very well and can be eaten in the winter, even though they are planted in the summer. Here is an overview of the varieties we grew this year: Acorn, Butternut, Spaghetti, Kabocha sunshine and confection, and Sweet Dumpling.
