September is harvest time and one of the tried and true staples of the produce garden is the Butternut Squash. Picked late last night, this sweet but nutty-flavored veggie is still producing despite the abundant weed patch. One of the major benefits of growing Butternut Squash - these beauties can store well into the colder months.
So butter nut squash them from your produce-to-grow list. As David Bly reminds us as we wrap up our first week of September, “Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven't planted.” Butternut Squash – part of a successful harvest with just a few plants and a smidgen of hard work.
P.S. What’s your favorite way to cook Butternut Squash? Hope to hear from you. Roasting them intensifies the sweet, nutty flavor.
