This is so exciting for me because the grasshoppers destroyed my summer garden. I planted these seeds and kept the plants on the patio for weeks to protect them from the grasshoppers. When I thought the coast was clear I planted them in the corner of the garden. It wasn't two days before some of them were gone and the grasshoppers were enjoying a meal. So I resorted to Sevin dust. Then no rain and even though I was watering them they were not growing. Then the rains came and they sprouted quickly and then the ants attacked. Back to powdering the ground with Sevin dust. I even saw bees in the flowers so I certainly wasn't going to powder the whole plant. My problem is I don't know what this squash is. I planted plain zucchini, pink banana squash and spaghetti squash. It is striped but looks like a zucchini and does not resemble what I remember the pink banana squash looking like plus those plants should be vining and these aren't. Guess when I pick it and cook it I will figure it out.
I work part time as well as raise and show dairy goats and make and sell goat milk soaps and lotions. My life is BUSY!!
