Wordless Wednesday ~ We Grew a Giant Mystery Squash

For months now I thought we were growing pumpkins.  I started out with a group of Zucchini Plants and soon I noticed a vine venturing across the garden.  I didn’t pull it out because it looked like a pumpkin plant.  It grew and grew and grew all through our fence.  I was cleaning up the garden and was about to pull it out because I haven’t seen any sign of a pumpkin and by this time I figured we wouldn’t get any.  Then all of the sudden I saw this!!!


Not a pumpkin, but possibly more exciting…a Mystery Squash!


It is huge and heavy and we have no idea what it is.  It seems like a cross between a butternut squash meets zucchini, meets watermelon.

I picked it because I was afraid an animal would eat it or it would rot and we would never get to hold it, but am afraid that we actually picked it to soon.  The skin is very delicate like a zucchini.

So, if you have any idea what our Mystery Squash is please let us know.  Either way we are enjoying showing it to everyone that comes over!

No idea what that huge mystery squash is, but as a new visitor to your blog, I have to say those girls make ADORABLE squash models! What a fun post.

Oh my gosh, that is absolutely hilarious - mystery garden goods! I am just the opposite - I would have let it grow and grow and then been absolutely devastated when it rotted or something else got to it before I ever picked it.

I think I got here from BlogFrog. You've got some cute kiddos :o)

It does look like a large zucchini. Very strange. Did you try eating it?

It looks like a zucchini from your garden cross pollinated w/ either a crookneck or butternut squash OR a melon. Maybe a little of both!
