Oh my! I had to go back and read again to see if just a figment of imagination. Good thing is it looks like enough plants are growing and producing, meaning a few more viable seeds.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Issac, for your review. Was it bland? What kind of taste did he have?
Yours Truly,

Yes, bland. I typically have grown Lakota Squash which has been good for me. They taste like a cross between Acorn and Butternut and are very flavorful. These ancient squash have a similar taste but on a very bland level. I would be curious to grow them again to see if a different year or conditions would affect the flavor, but otherwise, would switch back to my Lakota squash that are so good.
