What is this vegetable?

I bought these seedlings thinking they were cucumbers. Now I just don't know what they are! Please identify them for me. Thanks!

Thank you for the question. Your plant looks like a variety of summer squash such as zucchini, yellow squash, or many other varieties. I see it blooming. You should have small fruits soon that will shed light on the mystery. Here's a good Extension publication describing the most common varieties: https://extension.illinois.edu/veggies/ssquash.cfm

Thank you for contacting Extension.
