Have you ever grown something that didn't turn out like you imagined? 👨‍🌾👩‍🌾🌱

We sowed these back in May and they do not look like they should do 😜

They are not unsimilar to bowling balls so we have given them a cute nickname Pendle Crown Green Squash! What do you think 🤣

They taste ok when roasted and we are saving some seeds for next year.

Squash can cross pollinate so we might end up with something else next year.

Have you grown anything unusual this year?
