Front Yard Veggies

You can’t grow everything you eat, but you can eat everything you grow…

Melons!

One of my favorite things to grow is melon. In particular, I like to grow cantaloupes. Highlighted in this picture is Prescott Fond Blanc, which is an antique heirloom from france. The cool thing is that you know when it is ripe because you can smell it in the garden. In my case, I probably could have waited an extra day or so for maximum ripeness, but still it was really tasty!

This makes me look forward to next year, when I will have more room for melons. It should be noted that I grow them on a trellis to save space.

The book that inspired me and is a great source of info and drooly good pictures can be found here
