Sunday Photo - Melon


I had two of my Athena Cantaloupe plants grow to maturity and I ended up with exactly two beautiful cantaloupes. At least they are both nice and big, with firm flesh and really great flavor! :)

Cool! It always tastes better if you grow it yourself, right?

Marigold said...

Yay for you! Two is something. We can't grow a melon here to save our souls ... not hot enough for long enough. :( I shall live vicariously through you. :)

We've had such temps that we were able to grow about 6 melons so far. 2 of them are still on the vine. But with recent cool temps and rain... I notice several little melons coming on the vine again!
Aren't they delicious?

--yours look so pretty! enjoy,Pat

CAN you say...'nice melons' in the comments? ;)

Glad you got a couple.

Looks good! I keep thinking I am allergic to melons (suddenly) now. I would like to grow one to see if it's chemicals or really the melon. I even have slight problems breathing- cantelope, honeydew, watermelon, etc.

MamaTea said...

I don't even like melon, and those look GREAT!! Exactly two is perfect!

Michaele said...

I do so love the smell of these beauties! Good job!

Tombstone Livestock said...

WOW that one looks delicious. Enjoy.

Alica said...

Oh, they look soooo good! I'm not sure that my cantelopes are going to have enough time to make this year after a late planting but I'm still holding out a teeny tiny bit of hope. And thank you for sharing your great looking recipe for pumpkin scones... it totally looks like another winner to me and I can't wait to try it!

Home grown melons are the best. Not like the supermarket varieties that are grown for shipping and lasting a long time in the store. I have been growing my own for several years. I am still waiting for them to ripen.

Gosh, this is so yummy! It's making me hungry. Great photo.

These melons (we call them rockmelons) look so fresh and juicy - and of course I love the colours. Thank you for contributing to Mandarin Orange Monday:)

Kristina said...

Delicious! We only planted watermelon this year. That looks so good.

SweetLand Farm said...

Beautiful! They look amazing!
I have some melons, but not that big!

Lisa Lynn said...

My cantaloupe vines died shortly after sprouting so I'm very jealous right now :) And hungry...very hungry!

It looks so juicy!

I played too. Mine is here.

Robyn said...

Oh, how fun, Candy! Cantaloupe is one of my favorites.

Lovely flower pict too.

edenhills said...

That looks so yummy! I'm sure it tastes even better knowing you grew it.

Marie said...

Oh yum! I'm glad you at least got these two! I want to try to grow some next year!

Kateri said...

Well, you did better than I did. That looks perfect! I had one tiny edible melon. The rest rotted on the vine. (Though I have one plant that I planted much later that has three small melons on it. We will see if they ripen!)
