Hi, I have a mystery plant that has self sown from some compost - it was from the previous occupant of the house so I can't even narrow it down from what we've thrown in there. It looks to be a zucchini, squash or pumpkin type thing - the fruit that are beginning to come in are small and round (see second photo) and at this stage there are large bright yellow male flowers and only small female flowers.

Welcome! to ATP, NewbieGardener.

Here are a few examples from my garden. My best guess is that you have some type of winter squash growing in yours.
