My Mini Melons

I will soon stop talking about my garden. But the season is so short and I am so stinkin' excited that I can't help myself.

I planted these tiny melons this year for the first time. Minnesota Midget is the variety. I read that they are small and good for growing vertically. As seen in the first photo growing on a trellis.

On fell the other day and I realized it smelled ripe.  At only about 4" in diameter, I was nervous that it was too soon but guess what?  It was perfection.  Like a snack size melon.  It tastes like a combo of cantaloupe and honeydew.  Lovely and completely adorable!  I will definitely keep these on the must grow more list for next year!!

Those look so yummy! I wonder if they will grow in a warmer climate?
