Now the mystery has been solved! This is a Green Striped Cushaw. Some how, this squash sprouts up every year and takes over part of my yard. I didn’t plant it, so I didn’t know what it was called. So I called it my Mystery Squash or Striped Folian Squash, but recently I saw a seed pack in a store with a picture of this squash and the mystery was solved!
This planting is in the Vegetable garden.

This is one of the easiest and most prolific vegetables I have growing in my garden. I’ve had it growing for years now, but I never planted it, never watered or fertilized, never planted it in one of my raised beds with rich soil, step on it all the time

This one is smaller than most, but it was in the way on the path to the back of the shed. It needed to be moved, so I harvested it.
