Butternut squash…from saved seeds

2 Comments

Last year we saved some seeds from one of our butternut squashes and early in the season I planted them in tiny pots in the basement. Those 15 seeds turned into about 100 squash! So exciting to watch them grow through the season. And, right now, with this warm spell, they are continuing to flower and put on new fruit.

A couple weeks after being transplanted.

They started to take over the potatoes at one point.
