These cushaw were started from seeds of a cushaw I purchased at the grocery store last year. This is something I had never done before. I was ready to pull them up thinking they were not going to bloom and Darius changed my mind. So glad I didn't. I guess cushaw squash comes on much later than other winter squash. If they continue to grow, I will have to find some neighbors to enjoy them. Not sure what I can do with that many squash. Anyone know if you can cook these, mix pie ingredients, and freeze. It would be nice to just open one drop in pie pan and cook this winter. I have a couple from last year that once frozen I vacuum sealed and put back in the fridge. I haven't cooked them yet. I had heard it wasn't safe.
