Cantaloupe vs muskmelon…which is the proper name for the fruit many of us love?
What makes some fruit cantaloupe vs muskmelon?
Growing cantaloupe this year brought with it new joys and challenges. I’ve grown cantaloupe in New York in pots on a deck and in Virginia using the same method. This year, I decided on growing cantaloupe in the big raised bed in the vegetable garden.
I thought that was plenty of space for the six or so seeds I dropped into three holes in the garden bed.
“How big can it get?” I wondered.
Jack probably wondered the same thing about the beans that sprouted from the magic seeds he traded his cow for in the old story. Because the cantaloupe quickly took over the garden bed and more.
But in the end, it was worth it.
Oh my…when the pictures and story about these Colorblends tulips crossed my desk I had to share it. Now is the time to start thinking about next spring’s garden and order your bulbs for fall planting.by
