New Favorite: Zucchino Rampicante

Last February I bought a bunch of new seeds, including a pack of seeds for Zucchino Rampicante.  It's an heirloom Italian variety of squash that can be eaten young as a summer squash or aged and hard like a Butternut or other winter squash.  I like trying new things and thought it looked amusing.

I had no idea what I was in for!

Hands down the most amusing squash I've ever seen.  They are so long and once they hit a road block {read: the ground}, they curve here, there, and everywhere.  

On top of being fun to watch, delicious to eat, and great keepers, they grew so well in my garden!

It could be a fluke.  Of course.  But you bet your bottom dollar that I will be growing these babies next year.  Weird and wonderful makes me smile every day of the week!
