Early Squash

Look what was hiding under a large leaf--a baby butternut squash. My spaghetti squash didn't germinate. I'd saved some seed from a squash a friend had given me.

Since I didn't know the history of the squash, I decided to let it surprise me. My guess is that it was a hybrid of some sort with sterile seed.

In any case, the butternut has set on seven fruit so far and the vines are spilling over into the yard. I'll have enough to can, freeze, and give away.

Plus, my lawn is slowly disappearing under the heavy foliage.

Hurray, hurray, hurray!
