|Orangeglo Watermelon from Baker Creek|
Our Orangeglo Watermelon and a French cantelope melon called Charentais are doing well. Both should be ready at the end of this month or early September. Most are hidden, but I was able to get a few photos of the melons.

|August 1st harvest, I froze the ones in the tray yesterday. I also can some, but I make stewed tomatoes when I can. Freezing is so easy and I often roast several sheet pans in the oven first, then lift off the skins and toss into bags. I use a Food Saver Machine. Quick and easy.|
The grapefruits in the bowl to the left are from our tree, also the lemons. I know how lucky we are!!
