Things are finally making progress and I'm excited, so I thought I'd share!

This is just under 2 months ago. The larger chard/beets in the closest box were ravaged by leaf miners, so I destroyed them.

Roided out zuchinni. I don't know what happened with this guy. I wish everything were doing this well! There's a barely surviving yellow crookneck just to the rear left that was planted at the same time. There's also a mysterious vine to the front left that I thought came from a rogue squash root, but the leaves looked a little different, and now a fruit has set and I think it's watermelon! A seed must have gotten liberated from the compost bin that is just out of view in the left corner.
Image

Zuchinni babies! No signs of any more blossom end rot!
Image

Kale, collards, and watercress. I need to thin, but thinning makes me sad.
Image

Some of the thinned out greens transplanted, lettuce, sad carrots, and green beans.
Image

Side yard: tomato, peppers, more green beans, lettuce, herbs. And the neighbor's cat.
Image

Across from that, against the neighbor's house: Mint, oregano, cat, and in the far container, cucumbers.

Because I didn't plant it and I had no idea what it was for weeks.

You still sure it's a watermelon? Could be a pumpykin or gourdy!

That would be even more mysterious, because I would have no idea where those seeds came from!

Well the leaves don't look wavy enough to be a watermelon, from what I know of them. But that doesn't mean it's not! It's kind of fun, maybe a bird gave it to you!

Oooh...it could possibly be a pumpkin. I'm ruling out watermelon, because Mars is right about the leaves, and I looked at the fruit today and it is far less plump and smooth, and is possibly forming ridges. The leaves are somewhat silvery, if that means anything?
