Don't know what this vegetable is.

Vegetable question: I grew bird house gourds and acorn squash in my garden this year. I live in Claremont, NH and had an early frost which killed my plants. I have harvested 2, what I believe to be, squash but not sure. I took photos but no way to download here. These "squash" are about 14" long and pear shaped, green in color. Not sure if they grew to full size. Need to know what they are? Thanks, George Parsons

Hi, Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you. Our Garden Doctor service was down to be rebuilt the last month. The objects you describe sound like immature birdhouse gourds to me. Without a photo I can't be sure, but that would be my guess.
