Birmingham butternut

I have one! After Gladys, the butternut that wasn’t; we have a cobnut.

This is a cobnut squash, and it is growing up rather than out. I did this purely because I didn’t want slimers eat them. I did this with Gladys too; with less success.

I counted about 8 fruits, at varying stages of development. The one above; I very nearly missed. I only went into the foliage to double check.

A lovely surprise; as this is a squash that has been largely ignored. Didn’t think anything had been pollinated.
