We picked two ripe cantaloupes yesterday. I'm still amazed that they produced anything at all since they were planted in a shaded part of the garden. First one was a good size, but the other one is just a bit bigger than a tennis ball.
Both were fully ripe and oh so yummy! Very juicy, very fragrant and sugary - you can see on the bottom left side of the picture where i took a spoonful to try it. I'm definitely planting more of these next year and this time in the front of the garden where they get the most sun.
