melon harvest

Post  johnp on 9/6/2014, 9:21 am

After all my bragging about the best year ever for tomatoes, cuc's and peppers I harvested all my melons Friday and cut one up to eat. That was 50% of the harvest, a total of two and one is really small. I only grew two vines and they were on the same trellis as my cuc's and the flowers looked almost identical to the cucumber flowers so I have no idea why two vines produced two melons. Sad

This past spring was the first time  I got to eat home grown melons. Smaller & fewer than I wanted but mine all the same, added a lot more compost this time. I have a few more started for the fall season. These are Athena cantaloupes, have my fingers crossed for a better harvest.

Maybe bad timing with the flowers? I've had a devil of a time trying to catch a female and a male open at the same time on my zucchini this year.

I had 5 vines and maybe 4 small tasty cantaloupes. Next year, the paint brush!!
