I threw some seeds in a garden box, Carrots, Watermelon, and another one that I can't remember I think it's a melon but not sure what kind. Can someone tell me what it is? There should be a picture below. Thank you for all your help.

Looks like a cantaloupe. It might need support and will be ripe when the stem separates from the vine.

fruitnut-

-thanks for your answer. I think you might be right about it being cantaloupe, I do remember looking at the packs when I picked out the seeds that I threw in the garden. I'll have to think about what to use to support them, possibly nylon pantyhose.
