This was my first year growing these! To be honest, I didn’t even know what they were when I got the seeds with my heirloom seed collection. After research, I decided I would give them a try. I started the seeds indoors along with my tomatoes and peppers way back in April and they did nothing! Or so I thought. When I went to plant my peppers, I noticed that they had sprouted roots. So, I gave them a shot and put them in the garden. They were slow growers, but I did end up getting 3 delicious melons from those 2 plants!
I normally don’t even like cantaloupe, but it turns out when it’s really fresh and right out of your own garden it tastes amazing! Even the Mr. likes it!
After this season, I believe that they have earned a spot in the 2015-2016 garden! I still can’t believe that Fall is almost here! I have saved some seeds and I will see how they grow next year!
