How to Store Winter Squash Attractively

Decorate with it!



The ledge over my front door never gets direct sun and, as the weather turns colder, is well protected by our porch.  As I need a squash, I bring my stepladder out to the front porch (we have a tall house) and fetch one. Pin It

How lovely and practical at the same time! I adore your beveled glass, arched transom.

How practical and pretty! Will they stay good this way even after it freezes?

Love it! Looks festive and delicious too ; )

Beautiful.

Very nice!

Tracy, yes, because our porch is sheltered on two sides and faces south. However, I usually use the squash up by December because I decorate with evergreens and berries.

And you don't worry about spiders? I only ask because that's a favorite place for the eight-legged at our house. (never mind that I might have a itty-bitty phobia about it.)

Those pumpkins are such a pleasing colour match to your door and surrounding paintwork. It's a good thing pumpkins are quite a heavy vegeatable (or are they a fruit, not sure) otherwise I would be worried they may get blown down in a gale onto someones unsuspecting head, lol.

Gorgeous! And I thought they were just for decoration (the ones over your door, that is). How neat to have them as decor AND delicious meals!

Punk, spiders don't bother me. Other bugs, yes. I was always taught that spiders eat the "other bugs" - oh man, I hope that's true because I don't usually kill spiders.
