Melons. 8-17-11

We finally had some rain last weekend (8-13) for the first time in many many weeks. My son-in-law Chad Pettit has been in town for a couple days and leaving back to Colorado this evening, so I took the opportunity to pick some melons and let him do the taste test. He was just in time for my first picking of the long anticipated "Wisconsin Pride" muskmelon. It is the best one we ever tasted ... and it has now won it's place in my Family Seed Bank. The pictures are of  melons just picked today (8-17). The two types of watermelons, Ledmon (small round), and Ali Baba (big oblong). The Ledmon that Chad is holding and is cut open is a very small one but we ate that one and another twice the size and they were excellent. I am so happy with the Wisconsin Pride muskmelon. They are very productive, large, and of EXCELLENT eating quality.

The first muskmelon picked, 'Wisconsin Pride', as displayed by my Son-in Law Chad Pettit.

Wisconsin Pride muskmelon, yep it's a dandy and tastes wonderful.

Here are 2 Ali Baba watermelons, 11-lb & 13-lb.

Here Chad is showing one of two Ledmon watermelons we ate, i did take half of that one into G-ma Iris and handed her a spoon, it was a perfect single serve size, it was gone in minuets... LOL. The rind to the bigger one is on the table for comparison of size.
