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.

You forgot to mention the threat of squash vine borer, which maybe the Anasazi didn't have to deal with.. Several varieties are resistant, including Pennsylvania Dutch Crookneck. This is one of my favorites, needs lots of room and does well tied to 6' tall bamboo teepee.
