A Master Gardener I am not

I'm really not very good at gardening, I don't know if I have ever mentioned that before. But I do try, although I'm not sure why (heh, I made a rhyme). This year I had some seeds for an Alaskan Muskmelon, specially bred to grow in our climate. I planted them in the greenhouse in pots, and low and behold, they bloomed, then miracle of miracles, they started putting on fruit. I actually have one still growing on the plant, I have high hopes for it. Maybe in the greenhouse it will still get big enough we might could eat a part of it. :) But as you can see, this particular melon didn't really get large enough to eat. Smelled like a cantaloupe though. :) Mom took the pictures.
