It's time to start thinking about winter squash, so I planted some Butternut babies. Here is an update at 7 days:
They are stoked on the warm soil, and are coming up quick.
Roasting is one of the most common ways to prepare butternut squash. To do so, cut the fruit in half lengthwise, lightly brushed with olive oil, and placed cut side down on a baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes or until it is softened.
The seeds are edible, either raw or roasted and the skin is also edible and softens when roasted.
Soup, muffins & casseroles, oh my!
