A neighbour of mine, on the American east coast had a fire hydrant replaced in front of the house, right at the curb, and the fill used settled leaving a hole. He filled it with compost. Alas he now has road cantaloupes and courgettes (a type of small squash also called zucchini).

So is that Kelayim? (Clearly unintended, since he did not expect the compost to actually grow something).

And is he required to do something about it?

Would he be allowed to eat the fruit (ignoring whether it would be 'wise' to eat street fruit)?

Does KeyalimKelayim apply to road cantelopecantaloupe/courgette?

A neighbour of mine, had a fire hydrant replaced in front of the house, right at the curb, and the fill used settled leaving a hole. (Is that a bor? Does that make him responsible halachically?).

Anyway, heHe filled it with compost (bor no more). Alas he now has road cantelopescantaloupes and courgettecourgettes (small squashes, or zuccini depending on how you name ita type of small squash also called zucchini). I was amused, since I saw the leaves and said, ah, cucumber plant. But then cantelopes grew. But turns out the courgette just bloomed later and I did not recognize the cantelope leaves.
