Successful Melons - Garden Update

We have never had success in growing any kind of melons in our garden. We have tried a number if times and always failed. Pretty sad. We added some more gardening beds this year and decided to give melons one more shot, as we had the extra room. It worked!!

The combination of very warm temperatures and regular rain ended up yielding us some very nice melons. This was the first cantaloupe we picked. It was huge, almost ten pounds. What is really nice is that we have about eight more cantaloupe still to pick. We also have a watermelon that will be ripe soon. Things that grow on vines, are doing great this year.

The melon was very sweet and delicious. I wish you all could have a taste, it was really good.

I will give a more complete garden update soon.
