Kabocha Squash (or Pumpkin)

Kabocha Squash

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. :
