Heart of Gold

My garden is in harvest mode. We have had corn, peas, two batches of potatoes and collard greens. I have already put up three types of pickles and am now debating on what I should do with the abundance of tomatoes. But noting is more exciting than this wee-little cantaloupe. Cantaloupe is a new crop for us and while many would say growing one, little, still green cantaloupe is no real feat in gardening; we look upon this as a success. It might be small, but we hope that it will someday grow into a real cantaloupe.
