The First Melons

Today I picked two melons, one is a sugar baby (9 lbs, 9" diameter) and the other is a??? (looks like a Charleston Grey) but sized like a basketball (13 lbs, 11" diameter). The tendrils were brown, they had solid spots on the bottom and the skin was a dull color.

I saw a number of moon & stars melons and with their large yellow spot. I will get further into the patch later and see if they are ready. Next year I need to plant some Crimson Sweet melons.

Picked 5-6 squash and 2 tomatoes. The tomatoes are starting to ripen and there are probably 10 ready to picked.
