My first Butternut Squash

A first Butternut Squash

Ah, the excitement of growing our first butternut squash. Maia was so pleased she tried to eat it. Tasted delicious (cut into chunks and roasted in a filo pastry pie with chicken, leek and ham. I was surprised to see how much room squashes need. If anyone is thinking of growing squash next year – give yourself a good few metres, squash expands widthways and has creepers which need lots of room. Pretty easy to grow, I would say – needs good organic matter.
