We got home from Virginia just in time to get the tromboncino in before it frosted.  A light frost on Sunday morning was our warning; Monday afternoon we cut all the squash and pumpkins, piled them, and got them tarped, and Tuesday at five a.m. the temperature in the dairy was 37 degrees, while at dawn there were widespread patches of frost.  People, hog, and chicken food, this heirloom is very easy to grow, and stores passively well into late winter.  Individual plants can produce literally hundreds of pounds of fruit; from one vine we collected over fifty squashes averaging five or six pounds each.
