What Is It?

Does anyone know what plant this is?  These plants were all volunteers from the compost pile that sprouted in February.  They survived frost, heat, and drought, and are chugging merrily away.  I find it amusing that they are technically weeds.  Food weeds.

When they started sprouting, I left them in the ground to see what they became.  My money is on pumpkins.  I think I put the guts from last year’s Halloween Jack ‘O Lanterns into the compost without thinking.  If they are pumpkins, I guess I’ve learned that they can be started in spring, and don’t have to wait for fall. Neat-o!

If any of you know what it is, please leave a comment.  I’d love to get a positive ID, or at least a vote.  Thanks!
