The Squash That Would Not Die
Summer before last I planted Tennessee Sweet Potato. These are fairly big winter squash with a tough skin, a creamy texture and ok flavor IMO. I had one left over that just sat in the house all winter. My husband got tired of looking at it so he put it in the back yard where it sat all spring and summer. We would have forgotten about it, except it turned a beautiful, ghostly, pale lemon-green color. So he carved it into a jack-o-lantern last week. We were very surprised that the flesh and seeds inside were just as fresh as the year before! If you're interested in long storage squash, try Tennessee Sweet Potato.
