Our very dear friend and gardener extraordinaire, Lawrence L., sent us some heirloom cucuzzi seeds in the mail the other day!

I was very excited to receive these but had no idea what they were! Doug knew right away about this squash, his wonderful Italian grandmother used to cook them frequently. After doing a little research on the net, I am super excited to try this new variety in our garden. The boys are going to flip out over a three foot squash! I'll have to conspire with Doug's mom to see if she remembers any of her mother's recipes.

Thanks, Lawrence!
I can't wait to plant these!

Check out this YouTube video on cucuzzi...I think I'm going to have to get some more trellis material quick!
