Our squash harvest is finally here! Last week you got just a taste of all of the great varieties and abundance that will be coming your way!
Here are the varieties you may receive this week. If you need help identifying a squash, don’t hesitate to ask!

We have several more winter squash and pumpkin varieties coming soon! If you have trouble eating all of your squash in a week, here’s what I recommend doing:
1. Save your winter squash varieties as they will keep for several weeks or even months for many varieties. You’ll have a great store of squash to get through the winter months and beautiful decorations for fall and thanksgiving!
2. Freeze Summer squash using this method.
3. If you still feel overwhelmed, give some to family and friends.
