Honey Rock Melon Update

Honey Rock Melon grown from Seed – Day 32. 80 Days to Maturity.

The honey rock melon plants have flowers! I made a mistake and chose this variety because I thought it was a cantaloupe. Still, it’s an heirloom variety which means it’s been around a long time and I can save the seeds for next year if I want to.

I started off with four plants that I grew from seed and now only 3 are left. One is flowering. I’m happy to see flowers, but I just checked the seed packagea nd it’s a reminder that I have a ways to go until maturity – 80 days.

We haven’t had much luck in the family growing melons. Hopefully, that will change this year. Plenty of bees in the garden so we’ll see.
