Harvesting the Winter Squash

Now that it’s fall, it’s time to pick the winter squash here at my farm!

I have three large pumpkin and winter squash patches that are planted in early June every year. My gardeners and I plant lots and lots of seeds - many from our favorite seed companies, and some from interesting and tasty fruits I’ve enjoyed in years past. By late September, they're ready to be harvested. Yesterday, Ryan and my outdoor grounds crew picked lots of cucurbits, including acorn squash, carnival squash, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, and delicata squash.

Take a look at our bounty and enjoy these photos.
