Other People's Gardens----------Who Knew Part 3
Submitted By Patricia Beynan Philadelphia Master Gardener
Squash plants grow with a characteristic sprawl, and are space gobblers when your plot has other uses for that precious ground. But there are multi multi kinds, shapes of fruits and I didn't know what to expect when I saw the sprawling vines. Pumpkins were popular, and zucchini, acorns and those shmoo shaped things (butternut?) and the glamor king of squash, the multicolored sweet dumpling squash. They seemed far to pretty to eat, but I think acorn squash may be in my next year's garden.
