Melons!

July 25, 2010

I’ve been watching with great anticipation as the watermelon and cantaloupe vines are starting to bear fruit. So far there are two watermelons and one cantaloupe, but considering this year’s hot weather and sparse rain, and the rabbits who ate the first cantaloupe blossoms, I’ll be glad for what I can get. I don’t think the watermelon plants were labeled with a variety, but the cantaloupe are Athena. I grew this variety one other time, when we lived in Texas during another hot dry summer. The cantaloupe weren’t very big, but they were some of the sweetest I have ever tasted. I can hardly wait for them to mature!
