"Just a question. Why are you waiting? I'm eating now and judging by that stem I would eat that specimen now if It was mine and I wanted to eat squash.
I've heard that curing squash is a thing- I guess I do that with the ones I don't eat right away.
Though perhaps you only have a few squash? "
That's exactly it, William. I have a small yard and only have about 2 dozen squash total. I like to cure them and then eat every so often during the winter as a treat.
