What is that?

Jason and I are quite perplexed by the appearance of this little guy, especially since we have never planted any type of squash in our garden! We're thinking zucchini, but it could quite possibly be a whole mess of things considering the variety of things we have in our seed stash.

Anyone want to offer their opinion?


  1. This might be a stubby zucchini, but if it is a volunteer, it may be hard to tell. I had a bunch of volunteer plants this year and my neighbor, who has a much bigger yard, took them to see what they would be. They were all squashes, but they didn't resemble any of the squashes that I had ever bought. Not only that, but none of them really resembled each other. They were like squashes that had variable decorations, like gourds. When we opened one up to eat it, we expected it to be like a winter squash, but it was more like a summer squash. Whatever you've got there, it's probably good eats.

  2. Thanks for your input!

    We're thinking zucchini too, but either way it's going to end up on the dinner plate!
