The melon patch
Combination of cantaloupe and watermelon, shot yesterday
These are the starter plants about 3 weeks ago.
It's been fun to watch this little experiment. Because we are such novice gardeners we had no idea that the melon patch would take off so well. Now we're debating to thin it out. We also planted some flowering plants to try to attract pollinators. I have never been so excited to see bees. We can now see small female flowers that are turning into little melons. Having to thin out the surrounding prickly pear cacti patches that surround this little garden.
