Growing butternut squash.

This week I received a question from a listener about growing butternut squashes. In this week's podcast, I explore more into growing butternut squashes.

I talk about the interesting origins of this wonderful squash. I discuss how I like to grow this plant and what I like to use to grow this plant good and strong.

I will admit that I have struggled to grow this squash in the past however I treat it all as a learning curve and who knows what may happen next year.
