221: Hey! That looks like a real cantaloupe!

This thing is taking forever to ripen! I just want to pluck it from the vine NOW! I'm grateful for self-control.

Looks nice! Acadia would have already picked it and would have ate it even if it was not ripe. I think her nickname should be cantaloupe. She's always asking for it.

Love your self control.

Does it look ready?

check the blossom end press on it, to see how soft it is. If there is some give, it is getting ripe. also if you shake it and hear the seeds moving inside, it is ripe. Color wise, it looks like it's almost there.

My self control didn't last. I picked it and it still wasn't ripe enough. Darn it!
