My first pepper and unknown squash??? W/pics

YaY!!! My garden is producing!!! I picked my first Hot Banana Pepper and wow does it look great!

That is an average size teaspoon, nothing too impressive, I just wanted something to gauge the size with.

Pepper on the left is the hot banana (perfectly ripe!) However the sweet banana on the right is still a tad green.

Then I have this plant, 2 pics one showing the buds other is just leaves, any ideas? Not sure if its squash, or zucchini... or something else!

Here is my black diamond watermelon which finally (with some heat) started taking off, now just to guide it to the right spot so it doesnt take over the garden!

Yes, the fruit looks prickly like a cucumber or is that just more stem that I see. :?

I just picked a hot banana about the same size. Well, I didn't really pick it, the stem broke so I had no choice but to harvest. It was good, none the less.

No cukes

Well, I am having a hard time believing its a cucumber... as I never planted any. As far as I can tell its either:
Squash
Zucchini
Cantaloupe

I only say that because I planted one of each of those before my dog came in and destroyed my garden, that's why its wayyy over by the edge of the box and not out toward the middle as it should be.

Well I guess I will have to wait until something actually starts growing! So excited cant wait.
Just checked on things this morning and wow its like everything blew up over night! Gotta pick more peppers today!
