Seeds swaping

This is Cucurbita pepo var. giraumontia var. Warszawska.

Common names: vegetable spaghetti, noodle squash, Spaghetti Marrow.

I grew it for the first time and as I result have some extra seeds, that I may swap.

This spaghetti squash can be stored for use during the winter.

Seeds do not germinate in cold soil, so it is better to sow the seeds on the windowsill in colder climate.

Plant grows up to 5 m long. 1 plant may grow 6-7 cylindrical fruits of maximum size 1,5 kg.

If you are interested, let me know by e-mail, which is available in profile section. I will be more than pleased to send it to you. No extra charge.

I have received lately some amazing tomato seeds from Patrick at Bifurcated Carrots. If you drop there, you may read very informative post about why swaping seeds is important.

Your pumpkin looks great. How does it taste? ;-)

I'd like to swap seeds with you Ewa. You could send me some of those pumpkin seeds and I will send you ..... well, what is it that you'd like? Some vegetable seeds or perhaps some flower seeds? Let me know. BTW in my profile you'll find my e-mail adress.

BTW how's the weather in Poland? Here it's raining a lot today.

Ewa said...

Just started to rain. Yesterday and during weekend the weather was nicer.
I will be happy to send you some seeds :) Send me your snail address by email.

Do you have somewhere the list of vegetables you grow in your garden?
Actually I am most interested with different capsicum seeds.
But 'swaping' is not a must - I will just be happy to share the extra seeds that I have.

It tastes little sweetish - no other words come to my mind.

You made me hungry just showing this squash. I love to eat them but I don't have a vegetable garden. I use the squash instead of pasta when they are available. How do you prepare and eat your spaghetti squash?

Spaghetti squash is delicious! Yummy...I like it with cheese! How are you Ewa? I've been offl;ine for awhile...strange! Gail

What do you do to your vegetable spagetti, Ewa? I don't grow it and I have never eaten it because it reminds me of stringy regular squash, which I don't like. (I prefer my squash to be 'dry' rather than soggy, though I love zucchini.

I would love to try some of your seeds. Im just starting out here in the San Luis Valley of Colorado, so unfortunately I have nothing to trade. I wont forget you tho, I promise! Once I have a flourishing garden I will gladly share my seeds with you, and anyone else who is interested. Send me an email if you have any leftover seeds youd be willing to send :)

Ewa said...

I just bake it with salt, pepper and cheese - interesting taste at the end :)

I will be very happy to send you some seeds. Send me your postal address by email - you will find it in profile section, under picture.

I love spaghetti squash with a light pesto or a drizzle of truffle oil.
