Garden oddity.  
        Early in Sept. this year I noticed one of the squashes had a split in its side.
Thinking it would rot before it matured I pulled it off the vine and set it aside with the idea of inspecting it later to see what (organism? bug? fungus?) could have caused the damage.
           Having forgotten about the squash, it was brought to my attention that a seedling had germinated from the crevice. This photo was taken around Oct. 7.

Ten days later it has two leaves forming

I'll be curious to see how long this will continue.
                I'm keeping the inside moist with water about every couple of days.

    This is amazing - I guess you could gradually add a little compost - and the shell will turn into a pot. Will it suffer from the frost ,or do you not have that where you live? And thanks or your comment on my blog - you would love Ireland I am sure; such variation in the landscape and so much space.
