As I've told you before, I left a few volunteer squash in the gardens to see what they would grow up to be. I had a tiny white pumpkin [which succumbed to the heat and a vine borer, I believe.] and a bigger white pumpkin.
These are volunteers #3 and #4.
#4 is some kind of butternut squash.
Here is what a riper version of #3 looks like [next to the white pumpkin that volunteered.]
The green pumpkin is getting oranger and oranger. I'm wondering if the green stripes will disappear completely.
I must say that I've had a lot of fun with the volunteer squash and I'm getting things that I probably wouldn't have planted. I'll definitely be doing this again next year. I just need to find more room.
