I set up an experimental seed starting tray, but can' remember exactly what seed I put for some seedlings. One of them is a HUGE seedlings pictured in photos below.

I just vaguely remember that it could be an Agastache, or so some form of mentha.

I think this is the second one of the same kind, just at the early stage of development:

Update:

It turns out it was Cucurbita pepo - decorative pumpkin. Out of 8 seeds, 2 germinated. Those two seedlings are now in their own containers:

You may have noticed that a cotyledon of the smaller seedlings is whorled. I posted a separate question on that: Why is my pumpkin seedling's cotyledon twisted and whorled?


Update 2:

I already thought there will be no more pumpkin seedlings, but two more appeared this afternoon - boy, they are moving earth:

Looks like pumpkin, Vivid. You don't remember what you sowed?

    Or a relative, but whichever exact breed, I think you are spot on. – Stephie Apr 1 '18 at 9:41

    If you didn't sow pumpkins, then what about marrow/courgette? Most if not all squashes start out like this. And from the first sign of germination to your last picture takes only a few hours; the big one is overdue for its first potting up – Chris H Apr 1 '18 at 17:30
  • Some variety of vinous plant, certainly. I'll take a guess at summer squash or zucchini. – Bob Jarvis - Reinstate Monica Apr 2 '18 at 3:25
  • I agree with the comments here, it might also be Zucchini or other relatives. My first impression was pumpkin, but could definitely be other family members. – benn Apr 3 '18 at 13:18
  • I recalled that I sow in these cells so called "decorative pumkin" seeds, so this answer is very good, but thanks to other commenters as well! @BobJarvis – VividD Apr 4 '18 at 11:29
