…you come to expect the best-tasting fruits and vegetables and will settle for nothing less.
I’ve been waiting for the local cantaloupes to come to market. Well-netted, large, firm melons that smell like sweet cantaloupe. Today I was finally rewarded.
The heat has helped them ripen. The front melon could have stayed on the vine one more day, though it has a sweet taste. The back cantaloupe is perfection. It was like cutting butter when I peeled off the rind.
I’m still waiting for the perfect watermelon to appear. The issue this year is water. Will growers have to pull the water off too soon before the melons get sweet? I’m expecting to pay a hefty price.
