Stem grown into side of squash

Post  Megan on 9/11/2010, 11:44 am

I've never seen this before, thought it was pretty interesting. (The scar in the is from a rose bush the squash had grown over.) Part of the stem is grown right into the fruit and there is at least one blossom coming out of there.....

Too bad I have to rip my garden out. Faking up a pair of feet sticking out of the ground under the rampicante vines would be a FABULOUS Halloween decoration!!!! Laughing

I pulled EVERYTHING today... that squash is huge, and its twin brother is even bigger, I think... have to weigh them. I am absolutely drenched (yay for ripping out a garden in 3 hours in the pouring, pouring rain....NOT!) and done for tonight, but I'll have to post some pics of the booty.
