I picked the volunteer cantaloupe this week because the cooler night temperatures had killed off the vine. I knew it was still green but was hopeful it may ripen. Sunday I noticed it seemed to be softening so I cut it in half and tasted it.
Not sweet. It was bitter so it went into the compost bucket. I won't let any seeds grow in that compost bin next year.
All the green tomatoes I picked several weeks ago have been used except this one. It seems slow to ripen. I may have to use it green.
See what others are harvesting in October at Daphne's Dandelions.
