Test Your Knowledge of Squash

Haqlloween is around the corner and you can see a lot of pumpkin display in stores already. Let's test our knowledge about squash/pumpkins. The article below is from gardeningclub.com that I want to share here for you.
Squash
Think you know a lot about squash harvesting? Okay, are these two statements true or false? 1) It's best to harvest summer squash when the skin is tender and can be pierced with a thumbnail. 2) You should usually pick winter squash before the first frost.

The answers to these questions (keep reading for the answers!) can be found in a squash fact sheet on the National Garden Bureau's Web site.

The squash fact sheet is one of many on this handy site. Each one is a blend of interesting history, nutritional information, and gardening tips. (We learned, for example, that the remains of domesticated squash from about 4,000 B.C. were found at Bat Cave, New Mexico... who knew?)
