Top | theweeklyveggie.com — A Vegetable Ignoramus Expands Her Repertoire
(post, Cristin Couzens)
Winter squash. I don’t recall ever having a winter squash at home, or anywhere else until at least college. And then, maybe only as butternut squash soup at a fancy restaurant. My image of squash has pretty much been the standard yellow crookneck summer squash. Though I didn’t call it yellow croockneck summer squash, because to me, it was just squash. As in, there’s only one kind of squash. At the Hillsdale Farmers’ Market this week, there were a few remnants of summer hanging on, but the winter squash varieties have grown exponentially such that I can no longer ignore them and keep pretending it’s summer. Plus, it was cold enough to make me wish I had gloves. It was Sun Gold Farm that made finally made me pay attention to winter squash. For more market photos, visit The Weekly Veggie.
