This squash plant was grown from seeds I collected from a beautiful squash my Aunt brought with her for Thanksgiving. The squash was grown on a farm co-op (Sisters Hill Farm), and was just gorgeous. We used it for a centerpiece because it was so colorful. I don’t know what kind of squash it is, exactly, as I haven’t seen anything quite like it in the seed catalogs. I am trying not to get too excited about the prospect of harvesting from this plant, as I have an ongoing war with squash bugs. Last year they bested me, and I wish I could say that I expect to be better able to deal with them this year. I don’t use the term evil lightly, but definitely I think it applies to squash bugs.
