Twin mystery squash are fraternal

The two mystery squashes are definitely different squashes.  One looks to be descended from a sugar pumpkin that went rotten last winter, the other from one of the acorn squashes I ate. It’s nice to have a clear idea what they are, but no way are they going to ripen before the first frost hits. Shhh! Don’t tell them! Let them have their squash dreams.
