This morning's surprise from the garden was a trio of perfectly ripe cantelopes. While we had been hoping to wait to pick them until the kids get back on Monday, these babies were to ready to leave out for the wildlife to enjoy. The half I enjoyed for breakfast was very sweet, with delicate flesh and incredible aroma. I enjoy melons of all types, but this was my first home-grown cantelope. The fight with powdery mildew and various rusts were worth the flavor. Cantelpoe is back in the rotation for next year!
