Welcome to the site  :D

I'll move this over to the cooking storing preserving forum but feel free to pop back into the Welcome forum to introduce yourself and have a proper hello back  :)
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

With a dozen coats of marine varnish, they will last forever ! ! ! :blush:

Ensure you cut them from the plant with about 3 inches of stem, wipe them over and leave them in the sun to harden the skins,  turn the marrow so the yellower parts are pointing toward the sun.   Store in the good old "cool dry place".   :D  Cheers,    Tony.
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

I've had courgettes that got too big, that have stored till mid December once the skins have hardened off :)

Squash will store ages but I've never had marrows last too long, by a month they're done for.
