Growing butternut squash for the first time this year all looks good, would be grateful for any tips ref leave them on the ground to fruit or as I have been told you can train them up netting like melons.......many thanks
Hi Philippa, many thanks for reply did you get any better results by growing them upwards?? or not much difference to leaving them on the ground.
Too right bekkie! Even my sharpest kitchen knife has a hard time slicing a mature squash in half - the rubber mallet often comes in handy to get it started!
You must try one - easiest is roasting, just slice, a touch of seasoning and bung in the oven for 45 minutes or so - no proper cooking skills required and you won't believe how tasty they are! If you like soup you can do exactly the same then liquidise them.
