You may think I may need to get a life....
I was SO excited to harvest my very first cantaloupe ever today. How cool! I kept watching it, waiting for it to ripen enough to pick, then all of a sudden it turned a beautiful creamy orange and shouted, "Hey, I'm ready!"
As I've tried to make it a priority to eat only what I can grow this year, this cantaloupe suddenly seemed so valuable - a real treasure, especially since it was the only one on the vine, and the only vine I planted. It seemed like it deserved a special celebration or ceremony to mark the occasion. However, I couldn't think of any better way to honor the event than to eat it with great savor and appreciation, which I assure you I did!
