And with #3 Due in August 2013!!!
those are some nice looking squashes! Mine are still the size of tennis balls...were they cross pollinating? I have certainly seen some mixed varieties, last year I had a pumpkin that was very worty and had green lines from top to bottom.
1st one sure does look like a hubbard. Hmmm... Interesting.
Not sure about the second, I couldn't find a picture of that variety, is it a spaghetti squash?
Your Howden pumpkin looks like an immature Lakota squash. If it ripens to a rich red-orange, that's what you have. I like my Lakotas a lot - they are a nice, dense squash and keep very well (I just store in my stairwell and often am still eating them in May!). Here's a photo of a mature one:
It could also be a Red Kuri, but it really looks like a Lakota to me. Not all Lakotas end up with the green striping shown in the link above ....
