Behold the melon

We are growing melons for the first time. It’s an old French heirloom called Delice de la Table. Once it turns orange and yellow it will be devoured. Leftover untreated cedar scraps make great melon platforms. Next year I will attempt some stronger vertical trellising. Seeds from The Cottage Gardener (Ontario Canada) in case you’re looking for a source.

    Wow! Are you growing melon outside or under glass? Either way, that’s an impressive size fruit.
