This morning I saw lots of interesting things in my garden spots. Some good, some puzzling, some bad. I'll do just squashes, and I'll start with a mystery one:

I recognize the squash, common at around the 38th parallel in the Mediterranean, but I don't know how the seed got mixed up with what I thought was a hard winter squash. It's already over 2.5 feet long... I don't like its taste, but the young vines, known as "tenerumi" over there, are good eating as a topping for pasta. And this is the plant's flower:

Sticking with squash(es), here I document the progress of two monster butternuts and one delicata:

That's all for now.
