Winter Squash, Sunshine
Sunshine is a great deep red Kabocha style squash. It’s got a great sunset colored flesh that goes great baked, mashed or in pies. They are a prefect fit for the home garden with shorter vines, which produce 3 to 4 plants per plants.
Winter Squash: Home grown Winter Squash are a special sweet treat for later in the year. And if they are allowed to cure, they can be stored and eaten for months to come! Usually growing on long vines they do well either sprawled along the ground or trellised if you are help support them a little bit.
Growing Tips: Winter Squash loves deep, rich garden soil so make sure to work in a couple scoops of compost before planting. I strongly recommend planting the seedlings into a mound of soil about 8 inches high to help the soil drain well.
