Do Antelope Like Cantaloupe?

Well if they don't, we do! We tried growing the French heirloom Charentais (sha-rhan-tay) melons in our garden this year...with delicious results! These melons are famous in France: supposedly tourists there will pull over to the side of the road, lured by the floral aroma of a ripe Charentais melon field basking in the sun. You can smell the wonderful fragrance even before you cut these open. So pick these before the opossums (or antelope) do! These are not to be found in the grocery store, and rarely at a farmer's market, so try them in your own little bit o' dirt for a wonderful treat!

And another beauty in the late summer garden...Cinderella pumpkins! Oh the colors and smells and tastes of Summer!
