Tiny Squash

Last April, we bought a straight neck squash plant. Since my husband likes squash, we decided to have it in our vegetable garden. After less than three months, there were flowers and eventually the vegie started to grow.
Yet, after few weeks, it never really grow big. Some grow as tiny as my fist. Yeah! Anyway, it looks like the we got the wrong plant variety because this squash is round and tiny.
Well, we have a few produce and satisfying so far.
It is rewarding to harvest a produce. Maybe, next year, we will have more of squash varities.
I think this squash belongs to the species Cucurbita pepo. It is a cultivated plant of the genus Cucurbita which includes varieties of squash, gourd, and pumpkin. What d you think?
