    The water has mostly dropped out and I was out broadcasting seed, fighting beavers etc today.

    One small plant I noticed coming up in spots had a Y split in the stem and the two sets of two leaves looked like deer tracks facing left and right with the points splayed out.

    And idea on an ID?

    I pulled a few up and they did not show much of a deep root and I saw no visible seed husk.

    The plants were about an inch and a half tall.

    The second plant looked like watermelon until the third leaf developed.

    Any ideas?

    The second one looks like acorn squash, it reseeds itself on my property every year.

    It looks like you have a helluva good stand of morning glory.
