Non-harvest Monday

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.
