The Fruits of Our Labor

Our garden has had some trying times for the last year or so. We gopher proofed the garden, but accidentally made a hole in the hardware cloth that happened to be exactly where the gopher tunnel was (either that or gophers are really good at finding holes in wire to make their tunnels through...I'm not sure which). That meant that we still had a gopher problem, so we searched for weeks in our garden trying to find where he'd gotten in and finally found it! After spending months with our garden in a state of limbo this year, we finally managed to make it gopher proof AND gopher free! Unfortunately, we only had one plant survive this ordeal, but it gave us three lovely little melons. Here are the fruits of our labor:

For scale:

We have one, ripe, red tomato that someone has decided to eat. It's not a child. Not sure what it is, but apparently we are going to have to protect our garden as much as our strawberries.
