Rogue Watermelon

Apparently, we're also growing watermelon.  It took me an embarrassingly long amount of time to figure out that this plant is not a squash of some sort - but that, rather, we have a vigorous watermelon vine amidst our tangle of pumpkins.  There is one fat watermelon that is gaining in size daily.  

It's hard to tell in these pictures, but the watermelon leaves are huge.  Much larger than a dinner plate.  And the watermelon itself is already bigger than a good sized butternut squash.  That's it in the center of the picture below.  The leaves in the bottom left corner are our heirloom pumpkin vines just starting to stretch their legs.
