This is a pattypan squash I planted at the end May, and you can see that it isn’t exactly overwhelming me with its growth. On the other hand, below is a photo of a volunteer that I found along the walkway in the garden this spring. Actually, I found several seedlings that obviously were in the squash family, and I moved them over to the fence line. It has added a bit of suspense, wondering what they would become. Turns out one is a patty pan (obviously bigger and more productive than its intentionally planted sibling) and a few are ronde de nice.
