They're sprouting up in tiny pockets. They aren't really expansive so far.
I was curious because I live in canada, and cold climates don't usually yield waxy thick large leaved plants like this. Its my first year seeing them in our yard
I know its not much info, and might have to wait longer to see if they have flowers or fruit
Thanks for viewing! Any suggestions would be helpful

Welcome! It does look like something in the squash family (marrow here would probably be like a large zucchini). Did you throw out any pumpkin seeds or anything like that?

Thanks for the help! We used to throw melon seeds an shells into our backyard to compost! Didn't expect them to grow though!
