Our First Cantaloupe
I will grow cantaloupe forever, from now on. The first one fell off the vine today -- the connection shriveled up like a tiny umbilical cord and it rolled off the brick it was sitting on -- so I sliced it up and we ate it for dessert with a little ice cream, and it is the best cantaloupe I have ever eaten.
If this is what home-grown melons are like, I'm for it.
We celebrated the melon by opening a bottle of Nashoba peach dessert wine.
