Harvesting Winter Squash and Ornamental Gourds

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

Every June, my gardeners and I plant pumpkin and winter squash seeds in one of three patches at my farm - I like to use seeds from various seed companies and from interesting and tasty fruits I’ve enjoyed in years past. By October, they're all ready to be harvested. This week, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, picked a selection of acorn squash, carnival squash, and butternut squash. He also picked some ornamental gourds in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.
