If you cut it in half, clean out the seeds, microwave it for a few minutes, it makes it a lot easier to cut off the rind. I've saved the seed for next year.
This variety would make excellent pies. Winter squash can sit on the counter for months and still be good. Ready when you are to cook it.
The Butternut Squash barely did good enough in the garden to eat this year, after working over the soil, adding compost & fertilizer. They could fit in my hand. Zucchini didn't even try to grow. There was only a tiny acorn squash, not even big enough to think about cooking.
The Kohlrabi waited until the end of September to germinate. They're still small and might be killed off by cold before they get much bigger. Okra did good as always. Beets did good. I tried a new variety this year that turned out to be small. Tomato's & corn died, they never do well in this area, for me. Turnips did good. Collard greens didn't germinate. I usually plant a lot of everything and wait to see what grows. The neighbors horses ate all the lettuce.
My neighbors let their horses out at dark. They run over here to eat & drink all night. They don't usually bother anything. There's a colt that has doubled in size in the last three months. It runs over here all happy and full of life. When someone here is outside when it comes over, it runs home telling the others, go back, go back, we can't eat over there tonight, someone is outside. Horses aren't like deer which eat anything and everything. We don't have many deer around here. The horses mostly graze on grass, but they do like lettuce.
