Been a little while since i've posted. i've been busy with floral and event design for the wedding season. if you want to see what i've been up to check out our sister account @tularosaflowers
in the mean time the tromboncino have been busily growing giving us a late squash harvest. it's one of my favorite plants and this is seed that we saved from a neighbors plant that is now on its 3rd generation. it's very hardy, and puts up with a lot of neglect which is great. you can eat it at this stage and it tastes like a mild zucchini with hardly any seeds or let it ripen and harden off into a winter squash that tastes like a richer butternut. in it's native italy they like to use it to make soup and ravioli. i can't sing it's praises enough. it will quickly cover an arbor to give you summer shade and it's much more drought tolerant than butternut squash.
