My Little Pumpkin-like Squash

My little pumpkin-like squash is not growing.

I would have taken a picture to update you with, but it seems that this little fellow is doomed to remain a golf ball sized pumpkin.

What is weird is that this is on the same side of the garden as my mini butternut squash. SO this almost leads me to believe that there is something in the soil that is miniaturizing my winter squash. I would have said my crop and I would have said convinces me that there is something in that soil, but about 1 foot away is a zucchini that produced many fine sized vegetables. I did however have 2 zucchini plants that produced smaller than normal fruit, but those were in between 2 plants that produceda crop of average sized zucchini....so I don't know what to think at this point. Mother Nature is playing tricks on me again...

I will let you all know if there is a sudden burst of growing.
