Haven't seen anything like that. I did suspect slugs, since it's been so wet
and there are large ones around.
I guess I'll have to resort to ripening mine indoors, too, though there's 
quite as good as a vine-ripened tomato.

While I have not bothered to try to definitively identify them, I have  
found critters of "squash bug" shape munching on mine. Have taken to  
picking mine early and ripening them indoors.
