Shocking: volunteer winter squash & lovely cucumber

In other years, the squash bugs have completely decimated any and all squash & cucumber vines. So I'm delighted (dumbfounded?!) to report that for whatever reason, we have not only a very handsome lemon cucumber vine. And a very entertaining SOMETHING that popped up back in the compost pile. Need to look to see when it froze last year. We were thinking it was heart-wrenchingly early. (September something?! That it snuck up on us & cut the season very short. Got our fingers crossed that this season will be more "normal"--that both vines will have a chance to deliver handsomely. (Oh, the joy and agony, right?!)
