Dr. Bashioum’s Garden: French Melons

 As the temps get cooler in the evenings this time of year, I’ve been patiently waiting for my  French Cavaillon melons  to ripen before the first frost. After an anxious couple weeks, the melons finally got ripe and there have been plenty to share. Having endured a disappointing 2 seasons of an unsuccessful crop, they are as delicious as I can remember. It is worth starting and nurturing the seeds indoors when the ground is still frozen here, just to allow a long enough growing season in Minnesota. It is a joy to share this special treat!
