More Acorn Squash

Acorn squashSince my May 26 post on acorn squash,  a winter-variety squash, a few more have emerged from my modest pot! I’m thrilled and can’t wait to try them. The large squash in the picture is “new,” different from the one pictured on May 26, and it’s surrounded by new smaller ones!

TIP: If you’re growing acorn squash from seed (or possibly any other plant from seed), and it doesn’t seem to produce the fruits, vegetables, etc. in the timeframe listed on the seed packet label, give it a chance and don’t toss out the soil. The seeds may be very healthy but are just waiting for the right conditions in order to sprout. You can keep adding different seeds in your container(s) for the coming season, but you may be rewarded with unexpected and tasty past-season crops that your supermarket may not have! Keep watering the soil in the container once a week even if there is no evidence – yet – of sprouting, especially since soil in a container dries out faster than soil in the ground.
