It was 2 or 3 weeks ago when I first noticed three of these plants growing in the bed along the trellis. I'd spread my homecooked compost in that area so I knew they were most likely something in the cucurbit family. But just which of its many members is this? Lovable Uncle Zucchini, crazy Aunt Pattypan, mellow cousin Yellow Crookneck or even the Big Daddy of them all, Watermelon? Can someone identify this character? (Pay no attention to those pinecones under the leaves ... they're there to keep Night the Marauder from feline misbehavior in the area.)

Now wondering why Crazy Aunt Pattypan is the only squash we've had any success with here!
