Last week as my husband and I were chomping into a beautiful, rich red watermelon from the garden, I apologized to him for its late arrival. You see, heavy rain in May and vacation plans in June meant that I planted a lot of my garden late this year. My husband commented back how many people would feel blessed to be eating sweet, homegrown, organic melon in October. He’s right! Although the frost last night has brought future melons to an end, we still have several icebox-sized melons to eat over the next week or so, and all have a flavor and sweetness that you just can’t get at your local megamart.
Several of our favorite melons this year came out of one variety pack from Renee’s Garden:
This is a great combination of yellow, orange, and pink-red icebox watermelons, the perfect size for today’s smaller families.
For the record, no, I am not being paid by Renee’s. I don’t know her. I just like her seed.
