In the last few years I've suddenly become a huge fan of winter squash.
Last year I grew some Honey Bear acorn squash from seed from Territorial Seed Company and they were fantastic. So this year I planted four of them and got several yummy squash that we recently enjoyed with dinner.
This year I branched out, and in addition to the Honey Bear I also planted several other squash from Territorial Seed, including a spaghetti squash. We had the first one for dinner several nights ago. I roasted it and topped it with just a tiny bit of butter and it was out of this world. And it was a bit sweeter than other spaghetti squash I've had. I'll put up with the long (6 feet) vines and plant a lot more of these next year.
I also planted some Bush Delicata from Territorial Seed. Space was limited, and I had so many Honey Bear that I only had one plant of the Bush Delicata. Boy, was that a mistake!
We ate one of these for dinner last night and it was SO good. Fantastic, in fact. The husband proclaimed it his favorite squash so far. It's described as having a sweet nutty flavor with hints of brown sugar and butter, and they don't lie! If you're looking for a good winter squash to grow in the upcoming season, absolutely plant some of these (as many as you possibly can). They grow in a nice and tidy bush that won't take over your garden, and the few squash bugs I had this year seemed to mostly bypass this plant. Seriously folks, you gotta get some of these.
