I have another mystery shrub that's popped up in my flower garden this past few years. I've left it alone until I find out what it is... I may want to transplant it. It has small, evergreen leaves similar to a boxwood.
I purchased a packet of seed marked straight neck yellow squash (cause that is what I wanted). But obviously the packet was mislabeled. I have looked and looked and cant find a name for them. They are good but not what I wanted. I am in Texas. Somebody said it was a gourd but if it is its good!!!

I grow gourds every year, this looks like an egg gourd, some gourds are edible. It mostly
looks like a small spaghetti squash, but you would have known it was if it was stringy like spaghetti when you ate it. I agree with Francine C, it is an 8-ball Mexican calabacita squash.
