What they were, what they are now.

Burpee’s told me their¬†Pilgrim butternuts start out and stay the color shown on the seed packet, so no, what I was describing was not that and that the critters must have planted mine.

I wonder if they simply had a plant that got pollinated by something they didn’t want. Either way, my six remaining squashes are gradually coming to look like what I want¬†anyway, so, close enough, I figure.

Funny that they told you that they start out orange/tan because I have grown Pilgrim and mine looked just like that until they matured. I will say I didn’t care as much for them as I do Waltham Butternut, so now Waltham is all I grow.
