Pumpkin Patch Beginnings

We tilled up the section of our front yard between the sidewalk and the street and spread all of our compost in two long lines, then planted jack o'lantern pumpkins, ghost (grey) pumpkins, acorn squash, and spaghetti  squash. Or atleast I think it's spaghetti squash, I saved the seeds last year and didn't label where they came from.  Definitely a gourd-like plant.
Now, 4 days later, we already have babies shooting up.  This is meant to be a pumpkin patch for the neighbor kids to enjoy, too.  I'll post our progress.  Update from day 5: I counted 38 seedlings coming up!  We're going to be overrun with vines.
