    pretty sure it is a growing pumpkin-----we have about 14 of them, all growing from the spot where we planted pumpkin seeds---I hope that we can keep the freezing nights away long enough for them to ripen.

    Google Image Result for http://bp1.blogger.com/_SXMv2XhorB4/SJRTNQ4G_BI/AAAAAAAAAJI/nQgHLQ79o-o/s320/pumpkin.jpg If you scroll down on this web-page you will find a picture of an immature pumpkin that looks pretty close to your picture.

    Zucchini? Your family will have to take turns holding the gun on each other to make them eat it. Ick! Grow something good like corndogs or popsicles.

    It's a pod from outer space. They usually end up here on Earth hitching a ride on a meteorite.
    Soon you will see it pulsating and something will be moving around inside of it.
    You'll get closer to it to get a better look and a creature covered with dripping slime will instantly burst out of it and worm it's way down your throat where it will take over your body and even your closest family members will not know that you're now an alien specie invader.
    Destroy it NOW!

    I get something like that growing in my pastures pretty regularly. The little melon (smells like one) never gets any larger. I can't tell in the scale of your photo, but the ones I see are usually a bit larger than a ping pong ball.

    Spot treat with any broadleaf herbicide ought to zap them easily.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I'm voting pumpkin. I guess it could possibly be a watermelon, but I doubt it. It's been a few years since I've had anything growing, but I'm fairly confident that it's a pumpkin.

    Could be a pumpkin or Butternut squash
