Paddy Melon surely ...

Going by my weed book, could be *Citrullus amarus (Citrullus lanatus syn.). You will have to wait to see if it ends up with a melon, but not a Paddy Melon.

Solanum species - it is now flowering, purple flower with yellow stamens; can't work out how to upload new pic from here

With those tall prickles emerging from leaf surface it might be Solanum prinophyllum. But leaf would be a bit darker.

Solanum prinophyllum or S. pungetium. Definitely not S. pseudocapsicum (it has no prickles).
Plants in top right and lower left of photo are Sigebeckia orientalis

I think the leaves look glossy enough to say it is prinophyllum not pungetium (which has shortly hairy and hence dull upper leaf surface).
