So i didnít realise you consider butternut a different vegetable to pumpkin in the U.S.

I think we treat it as another variety of pumpkinÖ


Mailing cans of pumpkin sounds fun (but expensiveÖ!)

Yeah, we know they're related but the mindset here is to separate pumpkins from squash. Probably because pumpkins are really only sold in October and November. So butternut, acorn, etc are referred to as varieties of squash. Which is stupid because they definitely resemble pumpkins more. And if someone says "squash" without another qualifier, they are automatically assumed to be talking about the yellow summer squash, which is sold year round and is the most popular type.

I need to go to sleep instead of this.

I was looking at these at 1 AM. New low. Never knew that the squash most commonly sold here is called "crookneck" and that there is also a "straightneck." Summer squash, zucchini in particular, is one of my favorite vegetables, and I'm irritated that we're not offered more variety.

I donít believe we get many canned vegetables like that here. Just one of those things.

Canned spaghetti squash sounds kind of terrible though
