I bought a spaghetti squash maybe a month ago and kept it in my dark pantry. Well, they call them "keeper" squash, don't they? Last night I went to bake it and use as a noodle replacement for my Beef Stroganoff and this is what I found when I cut it open!!! I just thought it was too cool!! Janet
A funny thing happened while preparing supper last night...
Looks as though your squash is raring to grow! If you were not more knowledgeable, you would probably think they were "worms".
I have had this happen with tomatoes, of all things! It's a bit creepy at first.
Ooooo! Sprouted tomato seeds? I'd love to see a picture of that!
Very cool! I've seen apples and citrus do that. I had planted two grapefruit tree seeds from the inside germination. Did you plant these?
No, no room! But they were so crispy I wanted to eat them. But I'm afraid they went into the garbage. And yes, I'm a sinner. I don't COMPOST! Yet. :) Gotta get one of those self-contained composters one day so nothing is out in the open. We used to just throw stuff in a corner of the yard in our old house, but not in this neighborhood!! Sheesh. Houston neighborhoods! They're a blessing and a curse.
bariolio - maybe you could set up a worm compost bin in your home, or on the porch.
bariolio - Here's a link to Amazon. I've read that the "Worm Factory" works if one follows directions carefully.
One thing to note: Compost worms are different than earthworms found in your garden
Usually the place you buy the worm kit will either also sell compost worms, or will tell you where to buy them.
Or, you could buy them from "Worms Way" - they are all knowing when it comes to worms.
bariolio; Check out the Vermicomposting on Dave's Garden. You can set up a worm bin using 18 gallon totes from Wal$Mart. I don't have time to help you any more (going out fro a shrimp fry) Sorry Phil
Thanks Phil! I'll check it out soon.
And Lisa, I'd love to grow Spag. squash but alas, too little space, too little time, too much arthritis and I'm still in a walking boot!! Really interferes with my gardening...
That is so cool and 'weird'...never seen anything like it.
