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.
