Washevelak, we don't have them around here, but they sound dreadful!!  I"m sorry!!

Sanderson, there are both, determinate and indeterminate...apparently the first batch a couple of years ago were indeterminate and this year what we planted was determinate. I'm tossing those seeds...I just always assumed there were only vining ones Sad Two years ago, they were climbing all over, this year, just plants. I checked the seed packet, and sure enough if you read on the back, it says 24" high......grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

This is suppose to be a spaghetti squash:  One of it's vines escaped and is over 20' long.  It can't reach the 240' record cuz there's only 20' feet of room left! The fruit is now 16" long.

My bad. It is a Canadian Crookneck Winter Squash. Ancestor of the Butternut. Good thing I didn't cut it down today!

HELP! One of my female blossoms opened up, but the males are still closed buds. Will the female blossoms wait a few days for the males to pollinate or is that little squash doomed before it even gets started? Sad

I wanted to take apart a male bud and look for pollen, but I have vertigo today and can't bend over. Tomorrow probably won't be any better. It always takes a few days to go away. After that it will probably be too late.

I can't believe this puppy is still growing strong. I swear it never saw a boy blossom. So, how big should it get before I harvest? Can it stay on the vine with night temps in the mid to high 30s?
