Or - The Cushaw Squash Gala
Nestled deep below the cool canopy of fading leaves, next to the moist earth and straw, each of these babies appears as a unique individual, curled for the long grow as if sleeping.
Six seeds on a scrappy hill in a new garden - a cardboard bed was laid and they soon leaped from the dirt.
The Cushaw patch was picked Thursday in anticipation of Isacc moving into the area. Two of the squash had small splits in them and rain would have only made the situation worse. They have been weighed and named as of last night. I will double check the largest as it weighed in at 50 pounds. More photos soon. Click the Moonmooring link to see a slideshow of the squash.
