Tomatoes and Melon vandalism

This past week, we received a total of 5.8" of rain! I have been mostly harvesting tomatoes and pruning them. Today I picked 8 1/2 pounds.

We have still a few cucumbers and squash, but now the okra needs to be picked every day. It's officially summer.

The melons are ripening, so I watch them carefully. They are surprising because sometimes they turn golden very suddenly. My first morning trip out to the garden, I found this damaged cantaloupe. It has 1" narrow slashes vertically and horizontally on the side which was up. I have no idea what caused this type of damage. Any ideas?
