Recently we purchased kabocha squash at the store. It is a versatile squash that can be used in place of many types of squash and also as pumpkin. I read somewhere it is the sweetest squash available.
I saved about a dozen seeds and Larry planted them in the back yard. Some he put in pots and others went directly in the ground. Today we checked and 100% of the seeds have sprouted. Holy smokes! Here are some photos. I suspect in about 120 days we are going to be overrun with squash. I can't wait.
Here are some photos of the seedlings. :
