Review:

These grew like gangbusters! One even went up the side of the screened porch where I had to dislodge it, putting it back on the ground. Then another vine tried to climb into the Maple tree so I had to redirect that vine, also. The vines seemed to grow another foot each time I looked at them. Provided lots of fun and interest. The squashes were huge, weighing at least 20 lbs each with each vine producing about 2 squashes. In my opinion, these are some of the best squashes to use for pies, puddings, savory squash soup, etc. It took a large knife and a hammer to crack the shells, cutting them open. Then I cleaned out the pieces and baked them. (Reserve seeds for growing next year or fry/bake them for eating). If you mash butter, brown sugar, a tiny drop of vanilla and a dusting of cinnamon into the cooked pulp, you'll think you are in Heaven.
