What are the pros? Easy to grow, productive
What are the cons? Can really take over!
I love butternut squash roasted and to make into soups. This year I planted them in April and these plants spread. Then they spread some more. Then they spread more! Look out corn, peppers, carrots, tomatoes and anything in their way! They would've ended up in North Carolina if I had let them! I'm thinking next year of letting them climb over a pergola or something. But they did great in the heat, humidity and unusually rainy late spring and summer here and I'm very pleased with the quality and quantity of the squash. I will definitely plant these again. Just a little more strategically.
