Tree, shrub, weed?????
Can anyone tell me what is growing in my garden? It came up as a volunteer and I thought it was just a weed, but it grew so fast, I thought I would see what it would do. It is now 6 feet tall, stalk its about 1" across, with palmate leaves, and little yellow flowers. It looks similar to some kind of sqash, but the blooms are too small and it is growing upright. I don't really want to cut it down without knowing what it is. I am in the Kansas City area.
