A Hubbard

I'm wondering if the "Hubbard Squash" is named after "olde Mother Hubbard"? It certainly would have filled up her cupboard, lol!

Our little cowgirl is riding it like a bronc ... it's almost that big, just not bucking.

Apparently some folks prefer the hubbard to pumpkin because the flesh is smooth, not stringy like pumpkin can tend to be ... and just as sweet or sweeter. So if you have a hankerin' for some pumpkin pie? You know where to get the fresh squash for the filling.
