Bible is a good book with lots of practical info, such as how to build an arc to survive Idaho rains.  It also has instructions about how to make spotted goats and sheep.  Something involving use of willow branches or something.

I think a cantaloupe is an antelope that couldn't.  But they taste very good.

And cantaloupe has many spellings, one of which is cantaloup.

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 7, 2013 at 7:18pm

Muskmelons vs cantaloupes is kind of confusing.  Definitions seem to change as years go by.  However, it appears that a cantaloup is a kind of muskmelon.

Bible?  What's a bible?

Comment by Daniel W on September 7, 2013 at 7:12pm

Patricia, that looks great!  I'm really impressed, you get them in such a northern climate!

I have some promise of melon but not quite there yet - this is a miniature variety.

Spud, those rains sound like you should start building an Arc.  You might find some plans in a bible. 

Randall, I would love to be able to grow sweet corn here.  Summer is too sort and cool.  I might try some short season varieties next year if I have the ambition.

cantaloupe vs. muskmelon.  Some people swear those are 2 different animals. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 7, 2013 at 7:11pm

Patricia, your cantaloupe looks wonderful! They have a nice color. Congratulations! How does it taste? Your garden produces so nicely.

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 7, 2013 at 7:08pm

Randall, your dry barrels don't sound promising. Sweet corn must have tasted especially delicious. My goodness, 8,000 strawberry plants at Silverthorn-farm! You will need a crew at harvest time. Good idea about getting your winter wood cut, split and stored for the season. What is the old saying, cut, split and burn wood, three times of heat supply ... or something like that.

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 7, 2013 at 6:59pm
Spud, I am so happy to learn of your weight loss and feeling better. There are rays of sunshine in your future. I like the idea of all your stored water, especially since it is free from the sky.
Comment by Idaho Spud on September 7, 2013 at 6:36pm

Spelling correction: cantaloupe.  But you called it a muskmelon, didn't you?

Comment by Annie Thomas on September 7, 2013 at 6:33pm

Wow!  Congrats Patricia!  That looks delicious.
