what is boring into my cantaloupe?
argh! i just finishing doing research on a cucumber issue and think i have figured that out when i saw today that my cantaloupe have an issue, too. i see no caterpillars, beetles, etc. in the daytime and i have some melons suspended on the fence, but about 5 are so low that as they reach maturity they are basically sitting on the ground. i have a good layer of straw under everything. this is not the first year i have had this happen but still don't know what it is. a few of the fruit have small (maybe 2 mm) holes right thru the rind and what looks to be the digested rind close to the hole. that appears to be the only damage/blemish. some of the leaves are starting to not look that great, but i think that is a nutrient issue i am correcting. does anyone know what is making these holes, and is the fruit still okay to eat?
