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!
