Autumn’s Golden Harvest: Squash

Great blog. Thanks

A Growing Season

By Amanda

Autumn is definitely my favorite season, for so many reasons: the cool crisp air, the glinting sunshine and nature’s showy farewell with brilliant golds, bright reds, deep russets, lemon yellows, flaming oranges and everything in between, on the trees.

One of my favorite things is the fall harvest and all the deliciousness it brings. The multitude of autumn or winter squash that comes out this time of year impressively shows how nature (with a little help from mankind) can produce such a diversity of colors, stripes, shapes, knobs and forms on one type of vegetable.

Recently, I came into possession of several kinds of interesting squash: a Kershaw from a neighbor in West Virginia, who swore that his wife said it makes the best pies; a knobby green Italian Black Sea pumpkin, a Turkish Turban squash, and a traditional Acorn squash, all from Norman’s Farm Market.
