Grow Pumpkins and Other Winter Squash!

When Texans hear the word "squash," they usually think about the watery and tasteless yellow crooknecks and zucchini. Well, put those ideas out of your mind! Winter Squash deserves a place in every southern garden.

Interesting and informative text. I've visited Mesa Verde and walked away so very impressed. I'd not thought on food used there, but probably should of as that was what powered their rise in a pretty arid geography.. Thanks for the commentary, I like your slant on history.

Nice article about squash, Dave. I saw 'pie pumpkins' at a store the other day and wondered why those particular ones would be better for pie. Loved reading about that.

I enjoyed seeing the picture of the Colorado cliff and reading about the Anasazi and like jmorth hadn't thought of their food staples. Their culture fascinates me.
