Did you know that butternut squash, the variety we all know and love and hold so dear, was invented in Waltham, Massachusetts? Maybe invented isn’t the right word. Developed? It’s true. By a guy named Bob Young. UMass said so.
So, here I am, sitting in Waltham, Massachusetts, still working on this squash article because I’m a slacker, and it turns out that butternut squash was practically born in my own backyard. My editor is going to think I’m just making shit up.
