Hubbard squash, has anyone ever cooked one?
In addition to cooking, Im an avid gardener.
If If I haven't grown it, I want to grow it. And if I don't grow it, its either because I don't know about it, or Ive grown it and don't like it.
I love trying new things. Im a sucker when I go to a garden nursery and see something that Ive never tried before. Thats where the hubbard squash comes in. I was just about to hit the register, when I saw these 2 baby hubbard squash plants staring at me. I knew I had not even and inch to spare in the garden ( I have a raised bed, so space is very precise and accounted for), but i couldn't resist.
So now, along with my creativity, I found a way to grow them without taking over the garden. They seem to be doing very well, and I now I have a squash about the size of my head ( and my head is rather large). The thing is still growing, but Id love to know what it compares to, so I know what to do with it when it is pickable.
