Re: Name that plant!

To me, the ribbed ones look like acorn and the round ones look a lot like my watermelons when they were first growing, but the leaves don't look right for watermelon. They look like squash leaves.

ETA: Just googled young squash plants and the round one looks a lot like a small spaghetti squash. I did find a picture that looks a lot like it. It's about half way downthis page:

This is my vote - acorn and spaghetti which we did eat a lot of! Yah! I hope they tolerate the heat and make. They look way better then the squash in the actual garden.

UPDATE!!!

So the plants died back so we picked it all and we stuffed one of the mystery fruits for dinner. STILL a mystery! Looked like a acorn that didn't ruffle on the outside but tasted and had the texture of spaghetti squash. All our squash until now have been from WF so it seems unlikely a hybrid would happen but I guess it happened!
