What am I growing?

GardenPalOctober 3, 2012

My neighbor gave me seeds to plant and this is what is growing. What is it called? how do I cook/serve/prepare it? Is it ready to pick now or should it get bigger?

Thanks

That is a winter squash. Leave them on the vine until the rind is very hard. You can use it in any winter squash or pumpkin recipe. Typically the squash is cut into chunks and steamed or baked before using in the recipe.
