FIRST CANTALOUPE OF THE SEASON!

After doing a morning water and walk-through in the garden, found this little guy just sitting, off-the-vine and I figured it was sweet because of the bright orange color beneath the rough skin.

As soon as we cracked it open we were afraid it wasn’t sweet because of the greenish-orange color at the bottom, but as soon as we took a bite we were in heaven! Maybe it tasted a lot sweeter than it was because we grew it, but I’m pretty sure it was just really sweet.

We believe that the cantaloupe is a mix with a honey dew melon because it actually was sitting right by our honey dew plant. So of course we saved the seeds and will replant soon.
