Shown with garlic cloves (so you can tell it is not very big). The vine on one of the plants had withered so we picked this little watermelon.

Mmm very delicious! I am not a big fan of the taste of watermelon but love all other types of melons. This has a milder and more tropical flavor than classic watermelon.

I moved the obelisk over to the corner with the lemon cucumbers, since they were trailing over into the yard and choking out a small blackberry bush.

    I had a “volunteer” cantaloupe come up this year. It was healthy and producing however every melon (at various stages of development) got borers in them and were ruined. I garden organically so I was at a loss as to what to use – tried Insecticidal soap but it didn’t help. Do you get borers (aka: squash borers – but they seem to like cukes, melons and squash)? If so do you use anything to get rid of them? Thanks – I’m trying to figure out how to avoid this next summer.

      Thanks for the question. We’ve definitely had squash bug troubles and I am writing up a post right now all about the squash bug defenses we’ve tried. (Since it was a LOT of words to fit into a comment reply haha;) Stay tuned!
