Right. Time to get serious and talk about this year’s squash haul and what I’ll be growing again next year.
Tromboncino - a definite. I enjoyed them fresh and green but they’re storing really well too. I liked how they grew so well vertically and didn’t take up much space. Plus how else am I meant to play squash golf?!
Blue kuri - these were delicious. My plants weren’t perhaps as productive as in other years but a big hit to eat. Couldn’t tell much difference between last year’s red kuri mind, which I think are more attractive.
Spaghetti squash - easy to grow and produced some good sized squash which I’m really excited about eating. Time will tell.
Crown prince - should be renamed king of squash. Always.
Zapallo ‘gris’ Plomo - I finally found the seed packet to the trailing grey squash I couldn’t name. These were such a hit. Each plant produced at least two really big fruits, and they tasted nuttier than a butternut squash. My favourite we’ve grown - will definitely save seeds for next year.
Turks Turban - didn’t mean to grow this. Had a successful haul last year, but they were perhaps slightly neglected this year on reflection.
Baby Boo - I always grow these as autumn decorations, they’re just so cute. Maybe next year it’s time for something different however.
What squash do I need to grow next year I’m missing out on? 🤔 #squash#squashaddict#allotment#allotmentlife#allotmentlove#homegrown#gardenlovers#gardenblogger#selfsufficient#gyo#growyourown#growyourownfood#homesteading#gardenersofinstagram#thehappygardeninglife#girlswhogarden#veggiepatch#gardeninglife#farmher#greenthumb#shareyourharvest#harvest
