My cantaloupe have done real well this year, only had 4 hills, and have been getting enough for us and neighbors for a week or two. Birds, as well as other critters have been working on tomatoes as they ripen, but now they have figured out the cantaloupe are good also. I threw away one that had about a third missing, and of the 8 I picked 4 had some damage from something, birds I think, or maybe raccoons.
