Pumpkin for Halloween?

This was a volunteer plant from some compost mix from the Arcata garden-waste place.  It’s been trying to grow now for a couple of months.  It just produced its first “fruit” — I assume and hope its a pumpkin.  Will it stay warm enough for the pumpkin to get any bigger?

Interesting…this is totally unprotected from the deer.  They haven’t been interested.  If I had an intentional veggie garden in the same location the deer would have found it already.  Go figure.
