Butternut Squash is taking over the entire garden.

I have trellised butternet squash plants that are going in all directions. should I trim them or just let them fight it out with the other plants?

Take a cookie dish, spray with olive oil or butter. Cut them in half and bake with the cut half down. When they are soft peel off the skin, add a little salt, pepper and butter.......simple but really good.

You can also hollow the halves out and put some butter and brown sugar in the scooped out hole.Sprinkle the rest of the squash as well..Mmmmm I used to like this,can't eat sugar anymore but I still make it for the girls.The butternut squash can also be used to make pumpkin pie.
