Apparently, you get something like this.
I picked this yesterday out in the veggie garden. Isn’t it wild?
I decided to call them “Gumpkins” because I think they look more pumpkin-ish than gourd-ish. Besides, I liked the way that sounded better than “Pourd.”
Don’t ask me how this hybrid actually happened. I’m no botanist but I suspect the bees had a part to play in it. Some garden sex via cross-pollination. Whee.
Kind of like what might happen if a dachshund hooks up with a labrador retriever.
Here are the rest of the crop (so far).
These little ‘uns are from a different vine. I think they are adorable.
And this is what that sexy big boy looks like in toto.
I love that splash of almost-black on his top. Very, very Halloween-y.
I bet my front stoop will be the envy of the neighborhood.
Awesome! They’re gorgeous. Do you think they’re edible?
Well, you know, I had not thought about that! I will have to fill you in later on that one!
Beautiful! Love them all…
Dear Nancy, thank you! And thank you for taking the time to stop by an visit! Cackie
I’ve been happily eating my spaghetti squash-zucchini hybrids recently. Strange little creatures too.
Cool. Isn’t nature weird and funny? Thanks for stopping by to visit!
