I thought i'd start a thread for people to post pictures of winter squash and pumpkins grown in our 2014 gardens. Any unique growing tips, observations, or recipes would be awesome. I'll start with a picture of a Long Island Cheese pumpkin on the left and a Connecticut Field pumpkin on the right. The long island cheese was pretty much as described by reviewers but the connecticut field pumpkin was not the stringy, watery, and sub par taste mess like catalogs and online reviews claim. Of the pumpkins i've grown that was stringy and watery, Rouge Vif D' Etampes was the worst. C.F.P. was no where near that bad. In anticipation for the stringiness that never came, I did try a new recipe which turned out well. I used a Cushaw butter recipe only used pumpkin instead of cushaw squash. The ingredients were the cooked flesh of one medium pumpkin, 1/4 cup of apple juice, 3/4 cup of sugar, 4 tbls of honey, and 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice.
