At least it was until my neighbor spoiled it by identifying it ;)
I knew it was some sort of melon, but since I didn't plant it here between our parkway peanuts, I wasn't sure what kind. He says it's definitely a cantelope,
probably from seed thrown into the compost pile.
Kind of sad that it's MUCH more healthy than the ones I planted from purchased seed. Maybe the bit of shade it gets here in the afternoon during the past week of OVER 100 degree days actually helps!
(have I whined enuf lately about the weather?)
