For those of you who have large garden spaces, Hubbard squashes are fun and easy to grow. The green thumb swells with pride each time one of these giants is found partially hidden under their leaves.
Due to their massive size, we don't typically grow regular Hubbard Squash to sell. Instead, we look for the smaller varieties, one's that will feed a family of four, rather than fourteen.
So, earlier this year while shopping for seeds, we found a seed packet labeled "Baby Blue Hubbard". Emphasis on "Baby". (The clue, if paid attention to) should have been the five seeds and their size. Ah, 'par for the course' we learn something new every year.
|"Baby Blue" was referring to the color of the Hubbard, not the size. For comparative purposes, that's a golf ball resting against the vine.|
