The 2nd pic is definitely cucumbers. In the first pic I see one stalk of what might be corn sticking up, but it looks pretty chewed up on the leaves. Also, you need a handful of corn plants at a minimum to pollinate each other and actually get corn.

I don't see any watermelon, but it's hard to tell, since the plant looks very similar to cucumber.

Overall, looks very healthy. Much better than the cukes we've tried to grow.

They both look similar to each other. sure they aren't both cucumbers? If you look closely at both plants, the leaves, curly things and the little yellow blossoms look the same. I want to plant things now. Once my planter gets here I will be growing some things too.
We can only do planter gardening here, as long as it can be moved and is not part of the ground.

based on the crop showing in the left pic, I'd have to say you planted puppies. You've got 2 nice ones already...that look like they need to be picked.

Guess you'll have to see what those flowers turn into on the first photo. It's definitely not corn--corn doesn't grow in a spreading vine like that. Could be some kind of squash, etc. I'm impressed that you're having so much success growing veggies here! I MISS fresh veggies. Have you tried tomatoes at all?

Really? I have had great success with tomatoes, cherry and all kinds. The best method I have found is to raise a bed and put drip tubes in. I only use potting soil in the raised bed.

Plants that grow great are cucumbers, any kind of squash, zucchini (we had 3 a week one summer), peppers, and lots of fresh spices. Once you master these you can move on to others. I have found melons struggle with the heat. The vines grow like crazy but often the melons don't develop if they are exposed to the deadly sun. Plant tomatoes really early or late in the summer for a second crop. Once the outside temps reach high temps they don't flower as much.

The first picture is either a squash, zucchini or melon, the second a cucumber.

Corn would be tall and skinny not viney.
