Quite a few squash plants of various varieties around the garden. This one is "spaghetti squash", and it's quite rampant--climbing up the fence around the pool. Perfect for me--it's gluten-free pasta growing in the garden! (When cooked, the flesh turns to spaghetti. Magic.)
Also planted the ones that look like little yellow flying saucers, butternut (to make soup), and of course a courgette/zuchinni on the compost heap.
I like seeing them grow. I'm less fond of eating them. Have to find some recipes which do not turn them slimy. Rapid stir-fry. Julienned. Not cooked-until-mushy.
