Squash surprise

Plants are truly the craziest things. I've been watering two enormous pots of squash plants all summer. They continually have tons of blossoms, but I've never seen a squash on the plant.

Yesterday I watered again after work (it's been brutally hot here this week) and to my total shock, I saw this little guy growing:

It had been growing there all along! My plan for tomorrow's dinner is some stir fry with homegrown squash. It looks like there are more where this guy came from...
