My mystery squash have bloomed! I had saved some seeds last year which I think where from a pumpkin but I am not sure. Planted them in a pot just to see what would happen and they grew! They don't seem to be making runners which I thought was common for pumpkins.
I thinned them twice already since I wasn't sure if they would grow (I just tossed some seeds in) and I still have five plants. Now the wait begins!

It will be interesting to see if you get something edible from them. It's fun having mystery seeds. I picked up a seed head from the ground at a big display garden and grew them and they turned out to be a very pretty canna brasiliensis.

It is fun! We will have to see what comes out if any thing 🙂

Courgettes?

I don't think so but anything is possible! 🙂

Pumpkins can hybridize with summer squash and gourds, probably not a pure pumpkin since as you've observed the different foliage. I had one that tasted pretty good. I have lots of volunteers in my yard and encourage them, plants spring up where they grow the best, don't argue with mother nature.

True. Just have to wait... 🙂

That looks good. you might have too many plants for one pot. i grew my in the garden with a small hill of dirt and sometimes two plants on the same hill doesn't do very well. but I've never try it in a pot. So I could very well be wrong.

Need to hunt for a bigger pot or attempt to spilt the grouo to two pots. Will have to see what I can find.

Is this an example of you thinking something to later find it's not true?

@AstralSmoke It very well could be.

How fun to wait for the fruit to form. I love a good mystery!

Posted by ZsterI live in a very hard clay soil area and routinely time my ground work around softening rains.

Posted by LorajayMany of my shrubs look like they may not make it after our 12 days of extreme freezing weather but my Chinese quince is prettier than it's ever been. Perhaps it would prefer a colder climate.
