We’ve never successfully grown melon before, so it was really neat to walk out to the garden last weekend and see a whole bunch of these small, ripe fruits.
I brought in about 15 fruits that had fallen off the vines. They are much smaller than the cantaloupe you typically find at a grocery store – some just the size of a softball. But they taste so much better, and they are ripe all the way to the skin – hardly any melon rind at all. The perfect size to eat a half (or a whole!) with a spoon for breakfast. Chris has been enjoying them every morning with some Wildwood Soyogurt.
We have honeydew as well – though I’m not quite sure when to tell of those are ripe. They seem a bit green still, but I bet we will be enjoying them next week!
