True leaves on butternut squash

Butternut squash are being grown in the 4x9 raised bed next to the woods, and have begun to get their true leaves already. In all, there are 4 plants growing,  and I hope to get around 8-10 squash from them later....


  1. Last year my winter squash harvest was terrible. I'm trying a couple of new varieties. I've still the the typical Waltham butternut though.

  2. Definitely growing Waltham butternut again this year, as I wasn't thrilled with the number of squash I got from the Butterbush last year. I won't even get my seeds in the ground for another month though.
