HOLDING HIS OWN IN SQUASH: Six-year-old Jack Beck (right) appears to be having a hard time holding one of eight giant squashes which grew up mysteriously from an old compost pile in his yard. Jack's older brother, Don (left), who claimed ownership of the garden's rarities, holds one of two squashes which the Jay K. Beck family of 715 Virginia Ave., Ypsilanti, planted. Jack and the squash he holds both weigh exactly the same - 42 pounds. The eight "wild" squash together weigh some 200 pounds.

TOO MUCH FERTILIZER: Vernon Shipley displays two of the giant radishes his garden grew after he used too much fertilizer which killed the first planting last spring. This second crop seems to have done all right, though.

MORE GOURD THAN BEAN: The out-sized sample of New Guinea bean which 14-year-old Glenna Sunday of 4259 Dexter Rd. is shown holding is really more gourd than bean. When still green it cooks up into a mighty fine substitute for summer squash, according to Glenna's mother, Mrs. Glenn W. Sunday.
