Cucumber? Watermelon? Pumpkin?

We had extra room in our garden, so I planted 3 hills of vining plants, one each of Cucumber, Watermelon, and Pumpkin. Thinking I would surely remember which was which, I didn't mark them. What was I thinking???

I have vines trying to overtake my garden, and I don't even know for sure which one is which! I'm relatively certain that the largest leafed plant is the pumpkin. And I have cut the vines back, seeing as they were growing into the tomatoes and sugar snap peas and just trying to take over everything. We should be good on pumpkins. The cucumber and watermelon, however, I'm not so sure about. I thought I knew which was which, but when I went to the in-laws this weekend and saw their cucumber patch, all of a sudden, I'm not so sure. I guess I'll figure it out when they start growing fruit.

Note to self--ALWAYS label the plants!!!
