 I also thought it was odd that the vine that must've been connected to that monster wouldn't have been something he noticed in his potato bed.  Some gardener!
It is also odd that he would dig up something unknown and eat a piece of it.  If it were some kind of nightshade or many other things, it might not have ended well.
Re. mouse melons:  They were so darn cute a friend gave me some seedlings, but when they got ready to harvest, roughly 90% of them each had a worm inside.  My ag agent said just dump a lot of sevin dust and it will control them.  I am willing to use various pesticides and herbicides as appropriate, but in the kitchen garden all I grow are exotic peppers, cherry tomatoes, and tomatillos, all of which need no insecticides at all, so I wasn't about to wade into that for the sake of micro cukes!  But they are cute.
