It's that time of year where you can order your completely free butternut squash seed as a public participant in the ... deep breath ... Public Participatory Cucurbita moschata Butternut Squash Landrace Breeding Project for Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec... otherwise known as that Butternut Project.
In 2017, I had some great farmers showing me once again how awesome they were at growing by producing loads of luscious vines and fruit. Fruit set was late as we had low heat units last year but I did receive some seed back from participants. Many thanks!
Just contact me with your address and I will send you the seed and details. Spoiler: The details are very easy. Grow squash. No need to Isolate. Store squash from best plant(s) for a few months. Send back some seeds.
Easy as pumpkin* pie.
* Butternut squash makes the best pumpkin pie in my opinion.
All about growing, selecting and using edible plants in the Ottawa valley.
