Didn't know this was possible, did you?

I found a surprise when I cut open one of the butternut squashes waiting on my counter... There were four sprouts in there.
The squash itself was a bit dry but quite tasty in our veggie soup :)

Thats a bit odd.

What the heck am I looking at? Did a seed sprout inside the squash?

Yes, several. They were rooted in the meat of the squash. I didn't know they could sprout without light, and with so little air.
