Mystery Solved

We've had a mystery plant growing in the garden at the end of the Zinnia row...
It voluntarily came up on it's own... 
Obviously it is some sort of pumpkin, squash, zucchini or funky hybrid cross. 

Only problem,  the blossoms are white. .
 I have never grown anything with white blossoms before!
Hmmmm.....So we watched, waited, and went out of town for a couple of days. 
When we came home, this is what we found on the vine..... 
A baby birdhouse gourd! 

Clear back in April, we planted Birdhouse Gourds in the greenhouse....
Nothing, what so ever came up...

Not even after a month of waiting!

I figured the seeds were old duds and I gave up on them.

Somewhere along the way, the potting mix must have gotten dumped in the garden... Low and behold our Mystery has been solved!
