Well, for now its just watermelon... but cantaloupe are coming in right around the corner. So I should have some orangey fleshed sweets soon too. For now here is the melon in the garden... and its only a few days from being ready to pick... I hope!
Update: We harvested the biggest one on Saturday and it was PERFECT! Super juicey, to die for sweet... it wasn't huge as watermelons go, but it was a good variety for a quick harvest. Crimson Sweet is the kind we did, and it was worth it. Our decision to harvest was based on 2 things. The bottom of the watermelon was a yellow/white and the stripes were faded, that was sign one it was ready... and I also did the knocking on it method. If hollow its ready! I was told to see if the 'tendril' was browning and shriveling up as a way to see its ready... however a lot of the time that doesn't even start happening until the melon is OVER ripe.
So here's the melon before we devoured it!
