Today I started to preserve a few of the N GA roaster squash. While the majority of them will go in the root cellar and be stored, I wanted to get an idea of how far each squash will go and make sure that we had some froze, just in case.
All the remaining guts and peels can be fed to the critters for a snack ,so no part of the squash is going to waste. All pumpkin and winter squash seeds are natural worming agents. They
contain a deworming compound called cocurbitacin. Now this compound does not work on all parasites but along with natural doses of vitamin A and a healthy diet, one can almost eliminate worm issues with livestock. To use as a wormer, just grind the seeds up and mix into feed rations.
