Realtor, blogger....Master Gardener???

There is a flippin cantaloupe growing on the side of my house. It must be remnants from last years composting. All summer I watched that crazy vine and thought they were funny looking strawberries. Lo and behold, this morning I see this alien thing poking its head out. Cool. This must be how the pioneers felt!

Interesting, it looks like strawberries there next to it, but it isn't strawberry season.

Is there anything you can't do??? Dang, Girl!

So how do you know when the sucker is ripe??

Don't they have a button that pops out like a turkey??? :-)

Ripe? I just usually gently roll them in my hand squeezing softly and pinching lightly, a bit hard to describe how I know when they are ready, I just know.
