This spring, an interesting weed started to grow in a vacant pot. I let it go, and now have this big green cantaloup-sized thing. Does anyone know what it is?
Here is a link that might be useful:
Looks like it might be a Sugar Baby watermelon - Citrullus lanatus.

LMAO! you ding dong, it is totally a watermelon!
Oh man if we could all have weed problems like that.
I attempted to post a follow-up yesterday but it looks like it didn't make it. Yes, I am a ding dong. After reading jerkymom's post I remembered that i HAD planted some Sugar Baby watermelon, but when I saw those light-green jagged leaves on the seedlings back in April I was sure that they were weeds and pulled them out, except this one. I always thought that melon seedlings had two rounded, dark green leaves. I should have been suspicious when it started catching powdery mildew. Oh well....that one watermelon was good; we'll get more next year. Thanks for the help; otherwise I might still be thinking that watermelons grow wild.
