Look at the winter squash shaped zucchini thing I found in my garden this morning. It came off the same vine as the more typical elongated vegetable. I am constantly amazed at the way cross pollination can create such interesting stuff. Funny though, I don't have any winter squash planted (no rain). I have no pumpkins planted (no rain). In fact, the only things growing in my garden right now are tomatoes, okra, cayenne pepper, basil, and zinnias. There may be a few cucumbers out there somewhere, but I quit watering and picking when I finished pickling. Oh, there are weeds, lots of them. So, whence does this surprise arise?
Ah, a mystery. Maybe I could find the answer in the weeds.
