Curing Squash

This weekend I was approached by a neighbor who politely asked why I had all of my squash lined up.  I told him I was curing my squash so they would last through the winter.  It was then that I discovered that this common knowledge might not be so common.  Here are some squash tips:
  • Leave some of the stem on the squash and it will last longer
  • Once squash has been cut place outside in moderate temperatures and free from moisture for two weeks.
  • When storing squash in your basement place in mesh bags or on boards, never on cement.
