Kids tend to take unripe everything to throw at each other. One
hardly ever sees them, but green tomatoes and apples on the ground
indicate their presence.
Ripe stuff is usually taken by grown-ups. It really helps to harvest
early and often. Tomatoes that are turning orange will not get any
bigger, will ripen perfectly on the kitchen counter and taste great.
After a pumpkin or butternut squash turns color, it will not grow any
bigger. Take it home.
Cover your melons with the vine or salt hay or whatever. The melons
themselves don't need sun. The leaves do.
Carry a big stick and big mouth.
