This volunteer shot up in between my pepper plants. It is not quite as tall as the peppers.. My pepper plants aren't doing very well, notice the yellow pepper plant next to the unidentified volunteer in the pic.
Not sure what to do about the yellow pepper plant except add home made fish emoltion from a 5 inch fish caught 2 wks ago and placed in water in a sealed container. I doubt it's rotted enough yet though.
Can anyone identify this volunteer plant? I think it's a mellon.

It's been getting cold, about 40's a night for 2-3 hrs otherwise it is 70-90 degrees for 6-8 hrs most days now. Thanks!

Maybe one has to click log in on the photobucket site when you open it...where it says log in? Is there another way to see the pic. I'm not on photobucket.

I have a photo bucket account; unfortunately the link simply opens my own account.

Wish I could help, but since photobucket changed things a while back it won't allow me to share any photos...I even have problems downloading my own pics to my computer, so I finally gave up on the site. Not sure how you would get around this, OP.

sorry everyone thanks for letting me know.
It's the shorter plant in the middle I am trying to identify.
A few more of these will sprout up. My peppers are not doing well so might pull them to keep these

the tall varieties (10 ft or more) while visually impressive, can be a pain to remove. You'll need a strong back and an even stronger pitchfork.
