So in a nutshell, what happened was that I started some lovely pumpkins indoors, nurtured them, planted my them in my garden up on little hills at the beginning of summer... then the dogs ran them over. So I re-seeded outdoors, waited 2 weeks, NOTHING. Got really mad and threw all my pumpkin/watermelon/squash seeds INTO the garden .
So when something came up a month later (very cool/wet spring/summer) I was ecstatic! We had no idea what it was going to be but after asking you guys I decided they were all pumpkins and my squash & watermelon were dead.
A week or so ago our first "pumpkin" started growing, we went away for this last weekend and when I went to check on it with hubby the first thing he said was "I don't think that's a pumpkin". No, it doesn't look like it is...
It was quite round until this weekend, and some pumpkins grow quite long; so maybe it is a pumpkin, or maybe it is butternut.
You'll notice we have several squash-somethings growing in the garden & they all seem to have very similar, but different leaf structures. One is a more defined maple-like shape then the other, and the same one has sharper edges where the other is a little ruffled.
Does anyone know what anything is????
(and yes, everything is looking a little overgrown, I need to pull the dill & save the seeds & the lettuce is going to pop any day now, I'm so excited that worked!!!)
