Riley Cash and a friend have a melon/farm experience.   They picked cantaloupes and they found a watermelon that was ripe enough that they couldn't resist the fun of opening it up. We agreed not simply to drop it in the field.  Instead we cut it on the tailgate of my pickup truck.   All very neat and ladylike.     August 2015.

Early melons, 2015.  These are the first of them.   Look closely at the melon navel--where the stem was.   These were picked ripe and therefore there is no remnant of the stem.  They "slipped", which is the sign of a ripe melon at the time of picking.

Progress report 2015.   Here are the melons at age 60 days.   They are vining out and the plants are doubling in size every week or so.   Small melons have formed and there are many the size of baseballs.
