These cantaloupes are a special treat.  We don’t usually try to grow them, since the garden space is filled with herbs, hostas, coneflower, heliopsis, butterfly bush, Dave’s fly in diner for the birds with bath.

We have shared one of four cantaloupes with wildlife…..it seems this one may have been so ripe that it split open when we were out-of-town and raccoons feasted!
