more sugar baby questions
Yes, another one. So is this melon ripe? It's been way more than 85 days since setting the plant out, but I live in a cool marine climate. There's a small yellowish spot underneath but no real change in leaves or tendrils near the melon. There are, however, prominent ridges (which may not be visible because of all the dew) which are absent in a smaller melon that set much later.
Sigh...so far I've picked nearly every cantaloupe at the wrong time. I'd hate to waste this baby considering how difficult it is to just grow one period in this climate.
