I have a plant growing and want to describe it and see if you can figure out what it is. It appears to have leaves shaped and textured like squash or pumpkin. The flower is not the usual "trumpet" shape I have seen on either of those plants. The flower is light orange-yellow and has 5 petals (it kind of reminds me of an 'impatient'). I did not plant this so I'm thinking a stray seed or something. Can you figure this out - I tried looking in the seed catalog but couldn't find a picture with the flower on the vine.

Based on your description, is it possible that you have a nasturtium vine growing in the garden?
