Harvesting Butternut Squash

20120907-130519.jpg I think that I've found all of my butternut squash. This year I hauled in 4. Yes, 4. It may not sound like a lot, but last year I hauled in 1. So I've quadrupled my harvest in one season - not bad!

Theres a chance that I have yet to find all of them. My garden planters are woefully overgrown, but that might be a good thing. I noticed when harvesting, the harder I looked the larger the squash.

I'm hopeful that there's butternut squash risotto in my near future. For now, this foursome will rest & cure in the basement.
