Mystery Pumpkin

In amongst the last of the globe zucchini harvest was this little beauty. At first it looked just like the others, but after a few days it started to turn orange, not unlike a pumpkin. There I was thinking I should be off to the CSIRO with my cross pollinated zucchinipumpkin only to discover it had grown from the seeds of the special pumpkins I bought last Hallowe'en. I had chucked the seed on the ground by the shed but this one had got itself mixed up with the zucchinis and had grown...and grown...and grown. Of course there's no way of keeping it until October so we may have to try eating it.
