Spaghetti Squash

Success!  After planting close on 30 seeds we eventually had 3 that started to grow.  Maybe it was just as well that only 1 plant survived as it went wild and over took the raised bed that they were in.  We now have 6 decent sized squashes, ranging from about 6" - 10" tall, ripening on the window sill.  Quite possibly there could of been more, as there are still flowers and some fist sized fruits on the plant.  Unfortunately the weather has turned cold and wet so we do not expect them to grow and ripen any more.  Next year we plan on trying to grow different squash varieties, but intend to get them planted earlier.  I will post more pictures once we get round to using them.
