Andy harvests his first cantaloupe!

Isn't it a beauty?
I was so proud of Andy that he made such healthful choices when planning his garden. He was diasppointed in his watermelon but he has been watching his muskmelons with great anticipation (he has a lot of them).
The first two were finally ready this weekend. We ate one and gave one to a neighbor.
It was the juiciest cantaloupe I have ever eaten. I must admit that I am not a big muskmelon fan - Dan and Andy love them much more than I do - but I ate my share of this one!

You have such a smart boy. That look delicious! How many more cantelopes does he have on the plant?

It is, indeed, a beauty. Good job, Andy!

We harvested two more this morning and there are still 6 more out there. So 10 in total.

I planted cantaloupe for the first time this year too. I thought mine was the juicy-est one! It looks great. I didn't get a lot I have only picked one and I have one more on the plant vine as far as I can tell.
Good luck on the school sale.
