But what I assumed was a zucchini plant is actually not a zucchini at all. The plant was a volunteer from my compost and to me it looked like a zucchini especially since the flowers were yellow. I had never grown a zucchini, but we receive tons of them from our CSA and all of the vegetable scraps get composted.
This past weekend, I had to cut back some of the plant. It had grown to at least 8 feet in circumference and I couldn't get to the compost bin. It was blocking the way. That is when I noticed these guys.
So, I am calling all of the experts. So many of my readers are so knowledgeable about gardening and I'm hoping somebody can tell me what this is.
Have you ever gotten a surprise in your garden? Volunteers are fun, but it would be nice to know what this is.
