First the tomato picture: 2 Black tomatoes, 6 Amish Paste, and some Sungold cherry tomatoes
My cantaloupe finally ripened. I noticed that the stripes turned from green to gold and the smell was intoxicating. The flesh is a bit darker orange than the picture shows and the flavor is even better than the farmers market melons. I've read that dry soil makes sweeter melons and I have been pretty lazy about watering the melon patch. They take up a lot of garden space but I'm definitely going to grow them again next year.
This morning we took Henry for a long walk up the trolley trail to Oella (with a quick stop at the bakery for scones) and this afternoon I'm starting my chili for tomorrow's community garden picnic.
