Volunteer of 2012 summer season

Our newest volunteer plant for the year

We have at least 4 or 5 huge compost piles in various degrees of breakdown (having all that good poop and hay and straw leavings hanging around).  Every year we get “volunteer” plants growing on the piles.

Fruit of the volunteer plant (one of many) is growing in over the piggy girls area

This year we have a really healthy one that is obviously in the squash family.  I totally thought that it was going to be a zucchini, but the fruits are much too round right from the start.  Don’t know if it’s a butternut or a pumpkin.  Or it could be something else that one of the ravens have dropped while they were digging into one of the piles!
