Poking around in the garden today and spotted some muskmelons.


This muskmelon must have been lonely, he invited a friend over.


Not sure what strain of muskmelon this is, but it's cute, I think I'll keep it.

Tom, My Cantaloupe are starting to flower. They just sat there during all the rain last month, this heat has got them growing now. No little melons yet, though.

Thanks all, don't know if it's beginners luck or what, but I hope it continues :-)

And I know what you're going through andy, we've had soooo much rain the last month and a half, we're still having flooding problems around the city. But don't worry, your melons will start soon enough.

And Greg, remember when you said I have plenty of room to let the vines sprawl out on the grass? Well, I'm almost out of room, they're going to be in the front yard soon if they keep growing like they are, lol, have one vine about 15ft long and some others not far behind.

Have a couple pics, first is my biggest muskmelon, second is the biggest watermelon. At last count there are 8 muskmelons going and 7 watermelons(that I can see anyway).




The corn should be done in the next couple days, or so I hope, want to take them down and let the melons have a bit more room and sun. I'll post some pics when they are.

Almost forgot, the melon pictured above is the same one pictured first in my "corn/melons at 5 weeks" post.

The melon looks great, Tom! If they remain that healthy, I am sure that you are well on your way to a great harvest. Isn't growing things you can eat fun?
