Mystery squash revealed!

This squash had been growing out of my compost heap since early summer. As you can see, it has taken over the entire "fence wall corner" behind our shed. I had no idea what kind it was, but it appears to be a winter squash of the acorn variety. I got a look at my first fruit today. I think it is the result of some squash seeds I chucked last year, including possibly a squash that had "gone by.' It is nice to see something growing so well! I am pleased. My zucchini is doing awful. Next year, I'm planting it right here!

  1. LOL! Must be some very special variety to thrive so well! Then again, anything should grow well with good compost. Or on it.
