cross pollination of melons and squash

Anonymous added on August 19, 2015 | Answered

I've read your comments on cross pollination and still would like a little clarification. I have many squash-like volunteer plants in my garden. I collect compost from some people who don't compost, so I'm not entirely sure what seeds I may be getting! It seems that it's likely from what I've read here, that melons and squash will cross pollinate, and that means I could very well have useless fruit in my garden. Would that be correct? Thanks!
