Big squash harvest

Avid Red Bud gardener Jon “Boze” Meier has had a good season this year. Seen here is just one of several harvests collected so far this season of his summer and winter squash. The summer squash are hybrids from over 10 years of cross pollination. The butternut squash plants were all grown in an area the size of a volleyball. This is just his first butternut harvest and there are plenty left in the patch. All of Meier’s plants are grown from collected seed from the year before.
