My Magnum Opus

I've been doting over a giant Boston Marrow squash all summer.  I grew it from a seed.  It's a beauty!  What a thrill to watch it grow!

It is 16" long, 39 1/2" around its girth, and weighs in at 18 lbs.!


  1. That is a gorgeous squash! What are you going to do with it?

  2. I'm going to cube it, steam it, puree it, and freeze it. In a gardening seminar, I learned that 90% of the canned pumpkin in the U.S. is actually Boston Marrow squash, so it should taste just like canned pumpkin. Between it and its three friends that I also grew (smaller versions of my Magnum Opus), it should more than supply all our pumpkin needs for the year.
