Squash, round 1

We finally gave up on the squash plants. Their dried up leaves are done with the sun and their stalks are withered. Their job is done.

These are the first squash taken.


  1. Thanks! Your haul is impressive, even though you say that it is on the small side. I'm curious to see what you can do with your humpkin (tm).

  2. What lovely winter squash — are the warty ones Galeuse d'Eysines? I heard that the more warts, or "peanuts", the sweeter the squash!

  3. It is a Galeuse. I grew them last year with great success. This year, the haul is down, but still more than enough. Yes, more warts, more sugar. That did seem to be the case last year. They lend themselves to soups, as their flesh is very moist as compared to a Hubbard or Kabocha.
