kousha squash | seeds from the annual Old Timey Seed Swap in Athens, Ga | I'd never heard of this type before - fresh like a zucchini but will store like a winter squash | 6 plants & they've started running & setting fruit
the seed pack says prairie coreopsis, 24 inches tall | I started these last year & only had one plant survive to incorporate in my flower ring at the new house | I was beginning to think I'd been nurturing the wrong plant when, in a matter of weeks, this thing went from a foot tall to five feet | but finally it set flowers & they're 'right'
anybody know what this is? Gertrude gave it to me & I can't remember | it's 3+ feet tall & covered in these light purple flowers
