Melon Update

Our first muskmelon is nearing maturity. It was growing with the blossom-end standing on the vine until I dislodged it. This accounts for the bizarre bean shape it now has. It is still very pretty, with dark green skin and thick, creamy netting. It is growing under a tall Black Beauty eggplant which has protected it from the sun.

Our last Charleston Gray watermelon looks great. It is still growing, with no signs of the blossom-end rot that has affected our other watermelons. The skin has been blanched by the sun, making the melon easy to spot in the midst of our poblano and cayenne pepper plants.
