I have a variety plants sprouting up from compost-based garden, including tomatoes, peppers, acorn squash, gourds, and a weird melon plant thing. Kind of looks like a korean or a golden melon, but tastes really bland, so I think it may be a type of squash.

Squash are notorious for cross pollinating with one another. It may be a combination of more than one type.

Hi and welcome. It looks a bit like an immature Acorn-type squash, from the look of the seeds. If the plant produces another fruit, leave it on the vine for a few weeks longer and see what it looks like when the seeds are more mature.
