Who Let That Fairy Godmother In?


Remember my cattle panel squash?
The nice acorn and spaghetti squash that I was 
growing on the side yard?

Well, obviously something is not right here.
Someone let a pumpkin lovin' fairy godmother
into the yard and turned my yummy squashes
into pumpkins- next I'll be overrun with mice!


It's a darned good thing I love pumpkin,
probably a whole lot better than acorn squash
considering all the pies, cookies and cakes 
pumpkin can make.


But how did it happen?
 I didn't grow these from seed
that would have been in the bigger garden.
Were these just volunteers
 or 
. . . . . 


Did someone play 
Switch the Tags
at the nursery?

Hmmmmm

I planted zucchini last year and got some kind of yellow version which I know that I didn't buy, I think the seed companies mess up especially with seeds that look alike.

Yep, a boo-boo at the nursery for sure! They are looking really good though! :)

Now that is a pleasant surprise from the Pumpkin Godmother. I am trying to grow sweet potato, pumpkins and potatoes this winter (Australia).
