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!
