Melon Dreams

They may be tiny, but already they are mighty.

These little seedlings are my Noir de Carmes melons, the famous "Black Rock" melons from France, heirloom seeds preserved by Carmelite monks in the 1700s.  (I am a sucker for a romantic seed story...) In a few more days, I'll be planting them into their new self-watering tubs in the pop-up greenhouse.  With any luck, they'll grow long hardy vines and set lots of lovely softball sized, aromatic fruits.  Lore has it that their flavor is exquisite and not to be missed.  I can hardly wait to try them.
