Harvested the hybrid squash. This one grew on Patty Pan squash plant, it has tougher skin, a likely winter squash. I have been many summer patty pans from the same plant.. Interesting!

Blue Kale, Patty Pan Squash and a delicata squash. I accidently pulled this unripe squash when tidying up the vines. It’ll be a good experiment to ripen this indoors.
