Pull them out of the root cellar on a winter day for warm, buttery acorn squash soup or bake them with touch of honey and butter.

Planting Tips For Heirloom Winter Squash Seeds:

Heirloom winter squash don't mind the heat as much as their name implies.  Only plant once the soil temperature warms to at least 70 degrees and keep in mind that most heirloom varieties of winter squash take 110 days to mature.  So be sure to leave enough time to allow them to fully develop. 

Plant 3-6 heirloom squash seeds per hill.  Once they have shown true leaves and grown in size, you should thin out to the 3 strongest plants.  Remember, harvest these winter squash continually in order to keep the plant producing.

Seed Care tips for Heirloom Winter Squash:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.


1 Winter squash (a favorite for this recipe is Acorn squash)
1 Tablespoon butter
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Teaspoons maple syrup
a pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 400°F
Cut the squash in half and use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and strings from the center of each half of the squash.
Take a sharp knife and cut a few half inch deep X shapes into the inside of the squash flesh.  This should not be cutting chunks out, simply, scoring the flesh.
Place the squash cut side up onto a baking sheet.  It is helpful to fill the baking sheet about 1/4 inch deep with water to prevent the squash from burning or drying out.
For each half rub with a tablespoon of butter, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar, one teaspoon of maple syrup, and 1 pinch of salt.
Cook for about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes.  It will be done when the top is slightly browned and the flesh is soft.
When the halves are cool enough to handle cut out the cooked flesh and serve.

    I tried this variety last year and am just baking our first squash from last year. I love this variety and will never buy another Acorn Squash from the store again! I only planed 2 hills last year, but am thinking of planting at least 10 this year!
