  • Good for you Ryan..........looks rather like a summer squash which you have left a little bit too late perhaps ? 

    Have you hacked out the centre or has it shrunk back ?   So long as you have a good amount of flesh in there, you should at least have a meals worth.

    I seem to remember Spaghetti squash doesn't actually look like spaghetti until you cook it.

    If you are a fan of pumpkin pie ( I know I am ), go for the Autumn/Winter stuff...........heavy and full fleshed they are ideal.  Butternut are easy , Turks Turban are attractive........lots to choose from.

    Hope you enjoy it anywayimage

  • Yeah Phillipa we have and we've got a good bit of flesh, perfect for squash soup image I'll be saving some of the seeds too for germination next year
