    Default Winter squash for next year

    I've got quite a lot of very healthy seed saved from the Squash from my Organic shop. As with all Winter Squash you get a mix. They seem to be producing Butternut, Crown Prince, Turks Turban and Gem Squash. Very healthy vigorous clamberers and climbers producing masses of fruit.
    Will do well next year but my tiny space can barely handle 10 plants in total.
    Having been shocked rigid by the prices charged by seed companies I'm happy to send a few out to anyone that wants em.
    Mind you if anyone has some Buttercup squash seeds and could spare a few I'd be very grateful but no need for anything in return. Nice to think of these sproutlings sprawling all over far flung spots and lashing round trees I will never see etc
    PM your address if you'd like some.

    OK
    I'll parcel some up and send out early next week to everyone who's asked for some. No way of telling what you'll get mind. That's half the fun with Squashes though!

    If at first you don't succeed, open a bottle of wine.

    could i try some as well Pickledtink. Then you can think of your seed growing in Ireland. I have never grown any type of squash but after reading all the postings about them this year I can't wait to give them a go. I don't have any to return to you but if theres anything else you would like just let me know. Thanks.
