Another small harvest.
"Good news!" said Farmer Small. "I figured out how to solve the scary  big vegetable problem."
"That's great," I said. "What did you come up with?"
Farmer  Small  took me into the kitchen to show me his solution. "It's a cantaloupe, " he said proudly. 
" Why isn't it still growing on the vine?" I asked. 
    "I figured I'd pick it before it got too big. You can tell what it is." 
    "Yeah, but it's not ripe - no one will eat that."
    "You eat what we grow? "
    "That's the point of the garden," I said. 
    "Not to me, said Farmer Small, I just grow it." 
    "You don't eat it?" I asked
      He shot me a look of pity.  "I'm plastic," he said, "I don't eat anything. You going to eat that big mystery vegetable?" 
    " I'm going down to see the Grumpy Farmer today, and if he knows what it is, I'll probably eat it." 
    "I'm not sure I'd trust that guy," said Farmer Small, but it's up to you."

Where will farmer small go when it snows?
Seems like a bad end without a seasonal plan

Was that an offer or a question? I'm scared of snowplows but am otherwise handy to have around!

I think Farmer Small should live inside your home until spring-maybe on a windowsill- watching the weather

Hi Nicole. If he makes it through the fall we can probably find space for him on a windowsill - seems only fair:)
