Mystery Squash.....

Last fall,while my family and I were out doing our annual pumpkin and apple buying, I attained some fabulous Winter squash. As usual I saved seeds from two of our favorites but failed to mark which was which( I am working on this in a 12 step seedsaver program...the first step is admitting you have a problem).So this Spring in a fit of genius, I planted those seeds and marked them as 'Mystery Seed 1' and 'Mystery Seed 2'. well now I am mostly sure that 'Mystery Seed 2' is a Butternut....a very small Butternut, but still a Butternut.
'Mystery Seed 1'... well that's anybodies guess at this point. Actually I have the suspicion that it is not a squash at all, but some type of gourd....
