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. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

mystery squash

mystery squash 010 I have a mystery squash that's sprouted under my garden rake - right in the middle of my garden path. I don't think it will shade any other plants here, so it is still growing so far. I have no idea what it is.

What do you think it is? Looks like a cucumber to me. I love the mystery of an unknown plant (though of course it's something I grew last year).

It can be honey dew. I have several of those sprouted in my garden and this looks exactly like that

I'd vote butternut squash since cucumbers usually have more of a point.
