We harvested 4 butternut squashes last week. The foliage had started to die back and the squashes sounded ‘hollow’ when knocked. Tonight we made homemade butternut squash tortellinis which were lovely. It is great to finally have a use for all the sage we have planted.
I have heard some seasoned allotmenteers saying that butternut squash is not worth the space as you get so little volume or added flavour for how much ground you sacrifice. But I have to disagree. The taste was magnificent.
