“Holy Moly!” That’s the sanitized version of everyone’s first response to the biggest butternut squash I have ever seen. Tim with Hares Valley Growers was asked to grow large butternuts for a special order and chose the “Big Chief” variety known to produce butternuts over 10 lbs. The one he brought to our office is over two feet tall and weighs 26 lbs. Now it’s not common to describe veggies by height rather than length, but when “feet” are involved, you just can’t help it. He has a whole acre of them. See for yourself at www.tog.coop.
