A funny person had put in 5 SS and one pumpkin. I was so puzzled at the odd SS. Turns out pumpkin and SS cross pollinate like mad. I had a whole range of green, or striped, or spotted, white and gold SS. Some had threads inside like normal SS, some were more creamy. All were edible and good. Now this year I did not plant any pumpkin, but I have some volunteers from last year, so here we go again!
Here are pics of some of my crosses, all from the same plant.
Gardening is so interesting!
