This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

another mystery squash!

pumpkin
This is the fruit of another one of the squash plants that volunteered in my compost this spring. A medium-sized pumpkin. Its still tiny - only about 3 inches across.

Pumpkin -- Cucurbita spp.

hey we have a mystery squash that looks very similar. Is it a pumpkin?
What ever it is, it's proven tasty

Hehe, fun! I also got a mystery volunteer, but nowhere near the compost, and nowhere I'd ever have thought of planting a rampant squash vine. It looks like our local big gray ribbed squash - which I've never planted. So perhaps I have a garden fairy at work.

What fun to have a garden fairy! You are lucky. My gnome works hard, but he hasn't planted squash for me - yet.
