    I have seen many of these growing and being used dried in central and south central Kentucky. In some isolated rural districts in that area without plumbing, they are used as a very large spoon would be used in buckets of water or a shallow water well, thereby earning their name of “dipper,” e.g. “Would you like me to dip you a dipper-full to drink”?

    Elisabeth F sent me a note suggesting that the pale cucurbit is likely the rounded end of a butternut squash – seems logical to me!
