SEAHAWKS DAY (not winners) and cantaloupe

I didn’t know if  cantaloupe would grow in this area or not, but since the summer was so warm, I thought I’d give it a try.   They were late getting into the ground and didn’t get the fertilizer attention needed, but there are quite a few of these little ones.  I would call them personal size.   This is a teaspoon sitting beside it.  We picked 4 of them today.   Well, picked isn’t the best word, because they had already disengaged from the plant.  We simply picked them up.

The one we opened today was a bit overripe, but we enjoyed it anyway.   Tomorrow we’ll try another one.

Seahawk’s day is almost like a national holiday around here this year.   And all because they had a great year last .  We were invited to our oldest son’s new place and I took my knitting.   I am now nearly up to the heel.

And I had some time this morning to put the quilt blocks in some sort of order.  So here you see a very rough idea of “Tell it to the Stars”

    I never knew what a really ripe cantaloupe tasted like until we moved here. Picked fresh in the morning and bought at the farmer’s market a couple hours later……
