It’s October which means it’s time to harvest pumpkins. This year we grew our pumpkins in a shared garden with our neighbors, I wrote about it on August 28. I harvested four pumpkins today and three of these mutant delicata squash.
I’m not sure why the squash grew round like a pumpkin, but I have several theories. My best guess is that the seed I used from a squash that I bought was a hybrid and it reverted back to whatever it was originally. My second guess is that it cross pollinated with the pumpkins. They’re a little stringy for eating (I baked one) but they’re very pretty. I may have to turn it into a jack o lantern for Halloween!
