Went out to the compose pile yesterday, and what do I find but a lovely volunteer! Not sure what it is - any sharp eyes out there? Guessing either a cucumber, melon, or maybe acorn or butternut squash.
Hmmm....I'm going to go with one of the Cucurbita maxima types, though not sure. Here's a link to a nice how to identify squash page by our super resource Joseph Lofthouse. He may swoop in to give you a much more reliable answer. I guessed based on the leaf margins and this picture of Joseph's, though there are a few differences.

This Japanese Maple was a volunteer last year and it made it through the winter. In the top left you can see some volunteer asparagus. I must have dropped some seeds last year. I don't have a picture but I had a bunch of perennial strawberries come up this year. The bed doubled in size.
