The melon and cucumber plants keep rolling along, apparently loving every minute of 90+ degree weather. We have the cucumbers growing up a trellis, but the melon plants are just sprawling all over the place. They are at the top of the garden, near the fence, and they keep trying to escape by growing up and through the fence.
If you look carefully, you can see the melons hiding underneath the leaves (center and right side of photo).
This melon is almost fully ripe.
We're growing only one melon variety, Ambrosia, because it is the best-tasting melon we have ever had. It has a wonderful floral aroma when it is fully ripe and the flesh is sweet with a lot of flavor. I don't know if I could eat one of those watery grocery store cantaloupes again.
Have a lovely weekend!
