Growing Butternut squash

Does anyone grow butternut squash, if so from store bought seeds or from seeds from fruit from prior years?

I had some plants grow from a rotten squash I missed in my jungle of a garden last year.

Re: Growing Butternut squash

I grow acres of squash and I use seed from prior years with some new seed mixed in. Careful what is near by if saving the seed. I planted them too close to a pumpkin patch one year and the seed had to be replaced. The fruit was very large, to large for most markets, and some looked like long neck pumpkins. Waugh!
