My garden seems to be a microcosm of the known world. And as such, it is home to some very interesting foibles. It's a kill, or be killed, world. It's a work if you want to eat world. It's a, well, XXX-rated world.
It's also a "what the heck is that" world. Which is exactly what I said when visiting the yellow crooknecks a few days ago. Never seen the like before. Not even sure how this could happen. But, it did.
I let it get a little bigger, then I plucked it today. It seems to have 1 stem that splits into 2. Then, each stem produced a squash.
But, the stems are melded into one. And the squashes are melded into one. But, they are 2 separate squashes inside. Make any sense here, because it's hard to explain.
Here you can see how they melded, but how this can be done is confusing to this garden-a-file. It looks like they were shrink-wrapped in another skin after forming.
I cut into it and it does look like 2 totally separate squashes stuck together. It's more than this garden novice can comprehend.
It might make a good story on a garden version of "The Twilight Zone"....
