I need help with an ID for the 2 squash/melon fruits in the photo, please.

I only plant OP seeds, and I get them from reputable nurseries. This year I bought and planted Red Kuri winter squash, Charentais melon, and spaghetti squash. It was a terrible year for most gardens including mine, but these 2 things grew where I planted my seedlings, and I don't have a clue what they are. The pale ribbed squash looks a little like Thelma Sanders squash except it is very round, not teardrop/acorn shaped, and I haven't grown any of them in years anyway.

No Charentais melons ever fruited, and I got only 1 spaghetti squash. The red kuri did decently until the squash bugs got into them.

The two green oblong squash look like unripe sphaghetti squash. The other two are some type of white acorn.

Thanks. I was wondering if they might be small spaghetti squash. I may bake one to see how it is...

I didn't plant any white acorn squash, so apparently my seeds from Baker Creek were mis-marked.
