Here’s a look at yesterdays cushaw squash harvest with some Seminole pumpkins tucked in. These squash are produced by trailing vines that can stretch out well over 10 feet. They are a native variety of winter squash which means they take longer to mature and end up with a tough exterior. They are ideal for roasting at this stage. The flesh becomes tender and can be used for either sweet or savory dishes. There is one more harvest left from plantings made early in the summer. Tomorrow we will be clearing out the area and prepping for fall.
