Growing Butternut Squash in Fall - Zone 9
Anyone had success with butternut squash in the fall/winter? I live in Oakland, CA and included some squash plants for my fall/winter garden. I used the Burpee garden planner tool when planning and it included for me was butternut. I started them indoors in August, transplanted them in Sept and so far they're doing great. I just started seeing some flower buds last week. Thing is, everyone I talked to and all the sites I've looked at says they aren't part of the winter garden even for my zone. Not sure if I'm just wasting bed space on these guys.
