I managed to frow Butternut Squash from seeds this year the plants grew quite well.
I gave about 6 plants to my cousin who is a vegetarian and after a couple -3 months she seemed disapointed that nothing seemed top be happening with them , they would bloom and that would be it and nothing else would happen.
She and her partner were tidying up their little veggie plot last week and her partner nearly chucked the fallen leaves and the butternut squash plants away when he saw 2 strange things on the plants .He called to my cousin and she was shocked to see 2 butternut squashes!! , the fruit looked a unusual shape , but they were both surprised as she thought she wouldnt be getting anything of the plants .
What i want to know is it a bit late for these to be like they are at the moment , i think they are about 4 inches big
