Like most things in the garden this year, we planted more seeds than we needed. In Portland, we never had much luck with squash so this summer we planted several mounds of butternuts, acorns, and pumpkins hoping for a few of each. Well, we received more than just a few:
What a harvest this year! We left them on the porch to cure for 9 days and then stored them in the basement on top of a pile of newspapers and straw. We have a crawlspace under the basement (which keeps the basement warmer than most basements) so I don't know what the best method for storing squash is for our home? Any suggestions?
