It's a shame that the last days of summer are upon us but August has been pretty good to the garden. Despite the fact that it has been exceptionally dry, the weather has been warm and sunny so with diligent watering our crops have thrived.
Our cantaloupe are doing very well. We have quite a few small melons but nothing is ready to pick yet. When they become heavy for their size, are very fragrant, and the skin beneath the webbing is orange or golden in color they are ready to pick.
