Volunteer Squash #1

I kept four of the volunteer squash that popped up in the garden early this year.    They all grew out of the chicken coop dirt and since we throw all the kitchen veg scraps in there, I had no idea what kind of squash it might turn out to be.

This is one of them.  

It's a medium sized white pumpkin - a little smaller than the size of your head.

We bought a couple of them for Halloween two years ago and tossed the remnants to the chickens.

So far I have 4 pumpkins ripening and the vine is getting longer, so I might have more.


  1. Oh you're just taunting me now. :-) You have squash that actually comes and graces your garden. All of mine are dead. Whoop de doo! Takin' it in stride. Glad you got a bit of rain there!

  2. How cool! Volunteers are always fun (and sometimes even tasty). :)
