I was mildly disappointed in my garden until a few weeks ago when the melons really started growing! Last week I had 3 cantaloupes that were ripe so I've been having cantaloupe for breakfast every morning. I gave one away to the neighbor and there are several green ones still in the garden. It's really easy to tell when they are ripe. They smell REALLY good and the aroma is really strong througout the entire garden and they actually break away from the vine on their own. This one here is getting close....
Although I haven't had any ripe watermelon yet, I am also very proud of them.

Here is the biggest one that has taken cover under some weeds & grass. I have a feeling we are going to have more watermelon than we know what to do with!
