It is also very easy to grow squash in your garden and store it for several months into the winter. I used to store mine in my garage on the cement floor but it always started to spoil after a month or so. Then I read online not to put it directly on concrete because that makes it spoil faster. It also said to put it where it can breathe and have air circulating all around it. Well, that’s exactly what I was doing wrong. Storing it on the concrete floor in a big pile. So I started putting it in my wagon that I use like a wheelbarrow. It is made out of wire with little holes all over it. When I put my squash in the wagon it kept for so much longer. None of it spoiled at all and we ate it all before it spoiled. Just thought you might like that little tip.
