Mystery veggies

When James pulled up our garden, he found these two orby things. They look like pumpkins, they may even act like pumpkins. The problem is . . . we didn't plant pumpkins. We planted crook neck squash and zucchini. These don't look like any crook neck or zucchini that I've ever seen. We have a theory that some pumpkin seeds got mixed into our zucchini seeds, but if that can happen, then you'd better watch out. You may end up with cabbage in your lettuce patch or peas in your green beans. Of course, this is just a theory and we're open to suggestions on to exactly what these are and where they may have come from. Oh, one more tidbit. Our garden is brand new this year, nothing but grass has been planted there. Any answers to our mystery?

Wow, that is weird! They kind of have a green tinge to them. hmm... I think you're right about pumpkin seeds getting mixed in.

What kind of zucchini did you plant? If you planted the 8 ball, it could have cross pollinated with the crook neck and made a new variety of squash.
