I’m not sure what’s up with melons this summer but I’m not having any luck with them. This one, which I bought from the right-wing Christian, gun-nut farmer was like wet cotton inside. And it smelled, when I cut it open, like it was already fermenting. I tried the thump test but, well, it sounded fine I guess. I’m not sure what it’s supposed to sound like. Maybe there’s an app for that.
At least it’s cheap to buy them from him. I think this was a dollar. And I suppose that’s worth the gamble. But I may have to wait until I can grow my own to have melon again.
