hi, im a newbie here needing some help.I recently bought a house and found a vine growing in the back yard.i let it grow and it took over the yard. it produced two big green pumpkin-like things although they are more like watermelons. i have a pic posted in the gallery here. Can someone tell me what it is???

At first I thought it was a loofah, but I don't think it's wrinkly enough. Have you cut one open to see what's inside?

I can't help you with the name, but it looks neat. If you get any seeds out of it I'll be interested in some. It will probably be a bit different next year depending on what crossed with it.
