Earlier this year I bought some zucchini and pumpkin seeds at the local store. I’m quite a newbie when it comes down to gardening, so when it was time to put the zucchini and pumpkin seedlings outside in my garden, I did not really pay attention as to where I put them.
Silly me, because now I’m faced with a challenge to find out as to what it is that is growing in my garden!
To my knowledge, until today, I thought zucchini’s only came in one shape and one colour; long and green. I couldn’t have been more wrong! Not only have I come to find out zucchini’s also come in yellow, they can also be round!
Needless to say, as soon as I saw something grow in the garden where I had put the zucchini and pumpkin seedlings and it turned out to be round, I thought it was a pumpkin. After googling both zucchini and pumpkin plants images I am still puzzled as to what I have in my garden.
If someone could please look at the pictures I took and voice their opinion as to what I have, I’d be so grateful.
Could it actually be a mixture of both ?
It’s quite obvious there are two different kind of leaves involved. (Not to mention the snails have a clear preference for the darker kind…)
Zucchini or Pumpkin plants?
