Take Three Thursday: A Rogue Plant

Today I am joining Mary Lou with her Thursday meme where you show three photos following a theme of something you have observed during the week.
Out in the potato field there is a rogue plant growing.

Amongst the potato leaves there are some marrow/ squash type leaves. Taking a closer look one can see that the plant is flourishing.




The shape is like a squash but the colour is like a marrow. Any suggestions?


  1. Given the ease with which my pumpkins and courgettes cross-pollinate, I'd say it's a cross between a courgette and a butternut squash. Did you grow these last year? Either way, it's cute and sure to be yum ... grate it into some bread dough and bake!

  2. Butternut squash are like this when young and then the skin hardens and goes creamer or as Ella says it might be a cross. It might not last long in colder weather.

  3. Thanks for joining in Maggie & this is a very intriguing threesome. We get types of squash like this both in shape & colour ... the colour looks like there's been too little sunlight (hiding in the potato tops).

  4. I'm late to the quiz, and have nothing more to offer than you've already received!
