Yesterday I dug into this warty, dark orange little squash. I'm not sure what it is, but I'm on the hunt through my various seed catalogs. I found this little guy at HEB.
This one is a Turban Squash, also sometimes called a Turks Cap, also found at HEB. Gorgeous thing. These are edible, for sure, so he's going to the deer.
I washed the seeds, straining them several times to remove the threads of squash guts, then they'll dry here for a few weeks. Then I'll pick thru and find the biggest and most perfect seeds out of the pile to keep for 2013.
Today I'll do a couple of others, including that blue pumpkin that I got at the pumpkin patch back in October.
