Vine? Anyone recognize this vine?

  1. Hi! No one here has been able to figure out just what this is. It sprouted last year and climbed a ways up the fence. Never bloomed or fruited, but I thought it was a volunteer gourd of some kind. It sprouted out back this spring and has gone crazy (climbed way up in the treetops and covered a fence).

    lol yes you have a member of the squash family it may be zuchinni or yellow or could be a pumpkin. At least that is what it looks like in the pic
     
  3. Hi! The vines look like gourd or squash, but the blooms don't.
    The blooms are tiny and in a cluster.
