Volunteer calabazas grown right smack in a patch of Bermuda. Does this keep the blight from getting to the blossoms? These are about 3 - 5 lbs each.
Is the secret neglect, or sudden rains, or the fact that this is the third generation of seed from a fairly hardy survivor plant...or a combination of all the factors?
We'll let these dry out a bit and harden off in the shade of the back porch for probably a week or so, and then bring them into the house to store in a cool corner. Minus the dirt and about two dozen fire ants or so...
What's surprising you in your garden...or bermuda patch??
